Real Facism!

Pundits have been babbling since Obama took office about socialism and fascism. Most of them throw these terms out without a real understanding of what they mean. Fascism is the combination of a corporatist economic system with an authoritarian nationalism. Hmmnn. Today, the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 to roll back restrictions on corporate spending on federal election campaigns. Be prepared for an onslaught of corporations adding tons of political commercials, disguised as local grass roots political organizations. This will continue to be added to their uncontrolled lobbying efforts. Corporatocracy run amok. Now corporations in America have all the rights and powers of the individual (without many of the responsibilities), only with super wealth and influence. Now looking at the average corporation as a person with a personality, how would they compare to a sociopath? A sociopath generally is shallow and manipulative, remorseless, feels many things as their rights, pathologically lie, and are generally unable to empathise with the pain in others, even when they are the cause of such pain. Now think about a corporation with a focus solely on profit and nothing else. No concern for the environment, the health, wealth, or security of their workers or customers, no real ideology or belief system, etc. Just a profit focused sociopath. So now we have added thousands of new influential sociopaths to continue to destroy our lives, society, and country. Democracy is now on its way to being just a historical footnote in the history of civilization. And Joe dueschebag STILL just doesn't really see what is happening......
