So, I’m on social media earlier this evening, and got into a discussion re: gun control. Someone posted this list that purports to be the twelve steps to fascism. And it’s an interesting list, I’ll grant you. But… I think it’s got some holes. Here it is, with my commentary added.
1. Make patriotism a virtue
Sigh. Patriotism can be a virtue without things going to fascism. Next you’ll be saying that lack of love for one’s country is a virtue.
2. Make them believe their rights endanger them
