In the latest episode of "Iraq = 911," President Bush has taken another bold step away from any sense of reality or reason. I submit the following recipes to more clearly show the actual differences between terrorism, which is a tactic, and fascism, which is formerly a declared form of government (Hitler, Mussolini) and is now merely an epithet used to describe "someone else's" government.
|Recipe for a terrorist|
1 (or more) insane fundamentalist
1 disenfranchised population
1 gallon of xenophobia
take at least one insane fundamentalist and mix with a disenfranchised population. Add a heaping helping of xenophobia. Let stand until violence and intimidation start to rise. Simmer at a low boil until casualties occur.
Terrorism defined: [ 1, 2, 3 ]
|Recipe for a Fascist|
1 brutal dictator
1 strong centralized government
2 cans of condensed cream of jingoism soup
(overt nationalism will do in a pinch)
5 packages of authoritarianism
16 cups of corporatism
5 1/2 pounds militarism
Using the dictator as a base, form the government using the dictator as a mold. Mix with jingoism, authoritarianism, corporatism, and militarism in a large bowl until the population is at a fever pitch. Blend in a vicious anti-communist and anti-liberal bent. Add war and pestilence until the economy is overextended. A thick layer of corporate greed will congeal on top of the mixture. Cook on a high setting until the dictator is overthrown or the government collapses.
Fascism defined: [ 1, 2, 3, 4 ]
