Fascism vs. Terrorism: Which Is The Bigger Threat?

Over the past few years, terrorist threats have dominated our public consciousness. But a more sinister, subtle threat has emerged: A growing trend toward American Fascism. And many feel that this is the greatest danger to the American way of life in the history of our nation.

This article mentions how the government is teaming with corporations to bring America into an ever-increasing state of Fascism. A Communist government controls the corporations. A Fascist government is controlled by corporations.

According to Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism, our government is using disasters as a way to manipulate the public. Whenever tragedy strikes, changes are put into effect to increase privatization and profitability. Homeland security, schools, housing, and foreign military affairs (specifically, the Blackwater economy in Iraq) are all cited as areas in which this negative privitization has occurred.

Many feel that George Bush is to blame, as it is his administration that has created this situation. Maybe our next President will set things right. But they could also theoretically go further than even Bush has. And that's what scares so many.
