Fascism in America?

January 13, 2007

This post is less about “tech” and more about “slavior”. I am very sensitive to radicalization of society and that slight of hand that turns moderate but unhappy citizens into martyrs for a cause. There is a great interview over at Salon with Chris Hedges about his new book “American Fascists”, here’s a telling excerpt from it:

My father remains the most important influence on my life, and he was a Presbyterian minister, a devout Christian. I quote H. Richard Niebuhr saying, “Religion is a good thing for good people and a bad thing for bad people.” I wouldn’t describe myself as particularly pious but I certainly would describe myself as religious. And when I see how these people are manipulating the Christian religion for personal empowerment and wealth and for the destruction of the very values that I think are embodied in the teachings of Jesus Christ, I’m angry.

Chris drives parallels with Yugoslavia’s infamous religous melt-down and how something like it could happen in America. Take a few minutes and read it, this is something that might affect all of us in a few years.
