Rodrigue Tremblay: Imperialism and Fascism are on the Rise in the USA

Imperialism and Fascism are on the Rise in the USA: Discussion of specific laws and actions which suggest the Bush Administration have put in place the mechanisms of tyranny. Extraordinary, really. Most Americans (most people in the world) seem to have been sleepwalking through this huge constitutional crisis.

In the event of some new crisis like 9/11, US democracy could be more or less actually abolished. But with the huge decline in the political fortunes of the Bush gang, one ought be sceptical of how far they can really proceed with these plots. More likely, the formal concentration of power will continue in the US system, at the same time as both grassroots and international challenges to that power rise to confront it.
