C. Alex Jone's interview with Naomi Wolf, a breakdown on the ten-point list of America metamorphizing into a fascist, police-state:

3. America's political scene seems a replicate from the pages of Nazi history

The arguments from this article:
1. Unauthorized citizen surveillance in pre-Nazi Germany is all too reflective of Bush's Administration

"In his journal Sebastian Haffner decries what he calls the "sheepish submissiveness" with which the German people reacted to a 9/11-like event, the burning of the German Parliament (Reichstag) on Feb. 27, 1933. Haffner finds it quite telling that none of his acquaintances "saw anything out of the ordinary in the fact that, from then on, one's telephone would be tapped, one's letters opened, and one's desk might be broken into.""

2. Public relations (once known in Nazi Germany as Propaganda) utilizes the mass media to cover up, soften, and mask the tragedy behind the government's agenda.

3. There is submissiveness among the populace, even when the dismissal of human rights and diminishing of constitutional liberties is rampant.

Parallels to Nazi Germany: "There was not a single example of energetic defense, of courage or principle. There was only panic, flight, and desertion. In March 1933 millions were ready to fight the Nazis. Overnight they found themselves without leaders...At the moment of truth, when other nations rise spontaneously to the occasion, the Germans collectively and limply collapsed. They yielded and capitulated, and suffered a nervous breakdown.... The result is today the nightmare of the rest of the world."

4. Ten Steps to Fascism all too reflective today.

This video is around fifty minutes, but it is worth the watch/listen:


I cannot let the blinding of the mass media prevail among our youth. I will not submit. I will not forgo my innate human liberties as a submissive and shapeles citizen.

Act with vigilance and make every action, an act of conscientization.
