Renewed Interest In 'Fascism'
I am interested in letters in today's Washington Post criticizing a writer who had denigrated renewed interest in the subject of fascism after our new military leader came to power. This shows the letter writers are thinking clearly and have the correct passion.
Then I found an article from last month's Post which quite clearly shows that D. Trump is a fascist; not in the sense of a Hitler or a Mussolini, but in the more general sense of a person who believes in a strong government directly supporting a strong business elite. This article says very well what I have been trying to say for months.
Let us not allow the word "fascism" to scare us or anger us. We must bear witness to the truth and act according to our consciences.
