“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” ― Benito Mussolini
If anyone doubts the US is becoming increasingly fascistic, this quote – from an expert on fascism – should serve to remove those doubts. The main difference between communism and fascism is that in communism the government enforces its will directly, while in fascism, the government subcontracts enforcement to pliant corporations. The corporate wokeness blooming like thriving poison ivy over the last year shows how they are cooperating with the authoritarians within the Federal government to strip both individual citizens and state and local governments of both autonomy and of the traditional liberties they had previously enjoyed.
The good news is we are still at a point where we can push back on corporate actions. And push back we should – hard. For example, MLB has moved the All-Star Game from Georgia due to a law the state legislature passed requiring voters to identify themselves. The response from the Georgia Legislature should be to pass a law stating that any corporation or individual who institutes an economic boycott of Georgia because of a law requiring voter identification may not demand personal identification from customers doing business with them. Make them live by their own rules.Published in
