“Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.” – Harry S. Truman
There is not much I can add to that. Harry S. pretty much nailed it. Other than to note, he was a Democrat, which shows how much the Democrats have gone down the path of Fascism since 1972. (Yes, the big shift started after McGovern’s loss, when the socialist wing of the Democrats captured the party machinery and chased out first the anti-Communists and eventually everyone to the right of Henry Wallace.)
