Only the Truth is Revolutionary

Only the Truth is Revolutionary

One of George Orwell's most brilliant quotes seems most appropriate during this time of overriding preemptive presidential priviledge bordering on Fascism ~ We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men .

And the restatement of the obvious to all Americans is the true definition of Fascism. ( Courtesy of Steve Jonas ).

Fascism is a politico-economic system in which there is: total executive branch control of the government; no independent judiciary; no Constitution that embodies the Rule of Law standing above the people who run the government; no inherent rights or liberties; a single national ideology that first demonizes and then criminalizes all political, religious, and ideological opposition to it; and total corporate determination of economic, fiscal, and regulatory policy .
