Clues Your Country May Be Turning Fascist State

Clues That Your Country May Be Turning Into A Fascist State


By Prorev.com Editor Sam Smith

NOTE: Some of these symptoms are found in non-fascist countries where they should be treated as serious warning signs. On the other hand, fascist states - unlike democratic nations - have many, if not all, of these symptoms:

  • Your president asserts the right to ignore part or all of laws passed by the national legislature.

  • Massive warrantless searches

  • Your president and other officials regularly lie to you

  • Fraudulent election counts

  • Government monitoring of letters, emails, phone calls and checking accounts

  • Secret courts

  • A government subservient to the interests of the country's largest corporations.

  • Use of torture on prisoners

  • Courts that support presidential use of unconstitutional powers

  • Massive spying on citizens, especially those involved in political dissent

  • A government that uses words like democracy, freedom and peace while engaging in acts dramatically at odds with such words

  • Government agencies or officials declaring themselves exempt from portions of the law or constitution

  • Creation of watchlists, no-fly lists and similar exclusionary documents

  • National ID cards

  • Massive use of cameras to spy on citizens

  • A media supportive of, or obsequious towards, the government in covering its police state activities

  • Lack of legal recourse to stop illegal government actions

  • Prison without trial and arrests without charges

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
