Wake Up and Smell the Fascism

I'm always gratified to find expert opinion supporting my rantings. Its a weird and unpleasant experience to see the establishment become despotic and moderate opinions suddenly reclassified as extreme and dangerous. Equally disturbing is the support of the leaders of my own two countries (Australia and the UK), seemingly hell bent on defying the opinions of their citizens and pretending that nothing untoward is going on. If Bush is able to continue with his rampant nationalism (check out Orwell's definition) we will be the next countries to lose our democracy.
