William Greider Describes Fascism

America's Truth Deficit is what William Greider's column in the New York Times is entitled. It should have been entitled Fascism is Alive and Well in America.

After describing the very sad state of affairs for America in the near future, he offers some ideas for corrective action. Once offered, however, he slaps our faces with the cold truth of reality. The corrections, the reforms, the changes won't happen because "The webs of mutual interests connecting government, corporate boardrooms and Wall Street are too deeply woven."

So few even want to talk about it, much less do anything about it.

It is going to take James Kunstler's Long Emergency to wake the American people to this reality. Even the corporate boardrooms, government, and Wall Street will take notice -- something like the proverbial 2 x 4 smashing their heads.
