Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is important to note that the word used here is 'fascism', not Nazism. It is not necessary to fulfill the definition of being a Nazi in order to be a fascist. See Mussolini and Franco and consider the current situation in the USA. When powerful corporations control the selection of the candidates for the presidency, either control or can deadlock the House and Senate and have acquired a majority on the Supreme Court, when we have a domestic surveillance state that puts to shame anything from the first half of the 20th century and when we spend more on 'defense' than all of the rest of the world combined does it really matter that the shot callers have refrained from overtly exercising their power?
