    It's exactly these piecemeal gradual transitions that make a democracy an authoritarian fascist regime.  The only thing lacking right now is a leader who openly endorses the channeling of bloodthirst into violence.  

    The diarist's point was accurate.  For every hundred times Nazism is used as a hyperbole & pejorative, there is a time to think clinically about how it happened to a culture that resembled 1990's America in many ways.  

    The sickness in human nature that enabled that hasn't miraculously vanished.

      really only a musing on how people can stand by and watch things fall apart.  You can replace Nazism with any authoritarian government that turns on its people and vilifies intellectuals, scorching their own country's earth.
