This has led to a huge swathe of people who are ill informed, and when you get leaders that like to fan the flame of hate, suspicion and mistrust you will often get violence and even fatalities. How did it get this way?? Well Fascism doesn't just occur overnight, it happens in stages... and we are all guilty of ignoring it. The following are the early warning signs which are taken from the Holocaust museum:
1. Powerful and continuing nationalism
2. Disdain for Human Rights
3. Identifiction of enemies as a unifying cause
4. Supremacy of the military
5, Rampant sexism
6. Obsession with national security
7. Religion and Government intertwined
8. Corporate power protected
9. Labour power surpressed
10. Disdain for intellectuals and the arts
11. Obsession with crime and punisment
12. Controlled mass media
13, Rampant cronyism and corruption
14. Fraudulent elections
Now one simply has to have there eyes open to realize that nearly all the boxes are ticked. Mrs May has already shown her hatred of Human Right as she's planning to criminalize protesting and as soon as we leave the EU she plan to remove us from EU human Rights. The Tory party may not call themselves Fascists but if you just pay attention to what they do and say.... it's pretty damm close they do value profits over the people.Also the treatment of workers now is as close to slavery without calling it slavery. The worker is exploited to breaking point and has very little to show for it. Nurses have to work long hours while using food banks to survive and apparently this is acceptable by the PM!!
Like I said before the media in this country is glaringly right- wing and so agrees with the Government but if a news organisation dares to think about things another way they get bad mouthed and then shut down. This has already happened to the Iranian Press TV and know they are attempting to do the same with Russian Today, One of the steps of a closing society is to make dissenting voices feel like criminal, which they have begun to do especially after the referendum to leave the EU by calling the opposition " remoaners" and how they should stop complaining and accept it.
If I were to list how this country is corrupt, I would never finish but let me just remind you that the PM's husband hasn't paid any corporation tax for the last eight years and Osborne and Cameron are to make a huge windfall when we leave the EU!
This country should rename itself as Mediocre Britain because a great country doesn't treat its citizenry like this.... But I forget, we aren't citizens we are mere subjects!
With countries like the US Italy being seduced by the rhetoric of blame everything on the other and Italy for Italians, it does make me fearful of the future but also curious at how future historian will judge us all for letting it happen again.
