The Slide Into Fascism
So, secret concentration camps for children who have been stolen from their parents by men with guns how far down is that on the slide into fascism, actually…? (Are we close? There already?)
I was asked for my further thoughts on this, to which I replied:
- That no one can claim to have not seen this coming, with the rise of Trump and Trumpism (I sure can't);
- That, nonetheless - Holy F*&^ing S*&^; and
- That it's probably my duty as a human being to attend the protest against Trump's visit in London next month.
The march will of course accomplish nothing, but then I'm hardly the first person in history to feel powerless in the face of monstrous evil. (See also the quote from the great Tibor Fischer above…)
