The unspoken truth is that behind the bloody conquest of Iraq is the
conquest of us all: of our minds, our humanity and our self-respect at the
very least. If we say and do nothing, victory over us is assured.

"Fascism is an extreme right-wing ideology which embraces nationalism as the
transcendent value of society. The rise of Fascism relies upon the
manipulation of populist sentiment in times of national crisis. Based on
fundamentalist revolutionary ideas, Fascism defines itself through intense
xenophobia, militarism, and supremacist ideals. Although secular in nature,
Fascism's emphasis on mythic beliefs such as divine mandates, racial
imperatives, and violent struggle places highly concentrated power in the
hands of a self-selected elite from whom all authority flows to lesser
elites, such as law enforcement, intellectuals, and the media."

- BEN TRIPP paraphrasing Mussolini's diary.
