IDIOTS

If you guys leave your house without a full-face helmet on, you are an idiot, regardless of the law. If you fall of and hit your head at 35 mph, you are pretty much toast (that is the speed they crash test most vehicles). I have appreciate the freedom issue, but driving is a PRIVILAGE not a right. That's why they can take your license if you can't handle the privlage. It is also worth noting that you should be responsible for extra health insurance so the rest of us don't have to foot the bills when you are in a veggitative state for the rest of your life. Or they have to reconstruct your face because your chin was ground off. I have read all the b.s. about how they really don't save lives, but you only get 1 chance with the old brain. It doesn't heal quite like skin or broken bones.

See you at the Anarcist rally in New York. Do you understand the term Fascism or do you think it just sounds cool. We are nowhere near Fascism in the U.S. I agree with your lack of motivation with regard to the bicameral nature of our government. It is true, however, that the Islamic terrorists would like the Libertarian Party to be in power as they need all the rights you espose in order to sneak in the nukes. On second thought, maybe a Fascist government would be best.

First, I do like boobs so keep it coming. My only point is that Fascism is an overused/ mistated term. The following conditions need to exist for the term to be applicable:

Fascism and Nazism as ideologies involve, to varying degrees, some of the following hallmarks:



1. Nationalism and super-patriotism with a sense of historic mission.



2. Aggressive militarism even to the extent of glorifying war as good for the national or individual spirit.



3. Use of violence or threats of violence to impose views on others



4. Authoritarian reliance on a leader or elite not constitutionally responsible to an electorate.



5. Cult of personality around a charismatic leader.



6. Reaction against the values of Modernism, usually with emotional attacks against both liberalism and communism.



7. Exhortations for the homogeneous masses of common folk (Volkish in German, Populist in the U.S.) to join voluntarily in a heroic mission_often metaphysical and romanticized in character.



8. Dehumanization and scapegoating of the enemy seeing the enemy as an inferior or subhuman force, perhaps involved in a conspiracy that justifies eradicating them.



9. The self image of being a superior form of social organization beyond socialism, capitalism and democracy.



10. Elements of national socialist ideological roots, for example, ostensible support for the industrial working class or farmers; but ultimately, the forging of an alliance with an elite sector of society.



11. Abandonment of any consistent ideology in a drive for state power



12.State consolidation of the means of production

Although I agree with Seruzawa's points, to a degree, we continue to have a Constitution and electorate. Therefore, the state is tempered against major infractions. I would agree that during the Clinton administration the attack on the Branch Davidians bordered on a Fascist action. Were you frogs supposedly not in the gradually warming water moved to action, or were the Davidians too different to matter? (see point 8)
