NAOMI WOLF: MODERN FEMINIST WARNS “THERE IS A BLUEPRINT FOR SHUTTING DOWN DEMOCRACY”


NAOMI WOLF, THE “THIRD WAVE” OF THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT BLEW ME AWAY WITH HER ANALYSIS OF OUR SLIDE INTO FASCISM. WOW!

NAOMI WOLF: THE END OF AMERICA. – LETTER OF WARNING TO A YOUNG PATRIOT

Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of Fascism, outlining the 10 steps necessary for a Fascistic group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state and subvert the social/political liberty previously exercised by its citizens:

LOOK AROUND YOU.  DO YOU SEE ANY PATTERNS?

1.Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
2.Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
3.Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
4.Set up an internal surveillance system.
5.Harass citizens’ groups.
6.Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
7.Target key individuals.
8.Control the press.
9.Treat all political dissidents as traitors.
10.Suspend the rule of law.[27] 
Wolf details how this pattern was implemented in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and elsewhere, and analyzes its emergence and application in American political affairs since the September 11  attacks.

WATCH THIS.  I PROMISE IT WILL BE WORTH YOUR TIME.

THEN PLEASE, LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS (below), FOR DISCUSSION.   THANK YOU!

    “What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

    “This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.
