It is my argument that, beneath our very noses, George Bush (and now Obama) and his administration are using time-tested tactics to close down an open society. It is time for us to be willing to think the unthinkable - as the author and political journalist Joe Conason, has put it, that it can happen here. And that we are further along than we realise.
Conason eloquently warned of the danger of American authoritarianism. I am arguing that we need also to look at the lessons of European and other kinds of fascism to understand the potential seriousness of the events we see unfolding in the US.

Trooper Martin is a decorated veteran who recently returned from military service in the Middle East. He's also apparently a complete ass-hat. Helping destroy the remaining trust between communities and officers seems to be a priority for many modern day cops. Trooper Martin joins the growing list of nationally and internationally renown cops in the USA who are responsible for this breakdown. Currently on administrative leave (with pay of course), Oklahoma State Trooper's officer Martin will now be subject to one of those "exhaustive internal reviews" which will almost inevitably show that Oklahoma State Trooper Martin "acted within deparmental policy". Yeah guys, well that's the problem. Departmental policy for many deparments is to victimize the helpless and charge them with assault and "resisting".
See for yourself.

The CIA is adopting Web 2.0 tools such as blogs and collaborative wikis, but not without a struggle in an agency with an ingrained culture of secrecy, CIA officers said Friday.
"We're still kind of in this early adoptive stage," said Sean Dennehy, a CIA analyst and self-described "evangelist" for Intellipedia, the US intelligence community's version of the popular user-curated online encyclopedia Wikipedia.

FBI Director Robert Mueller on Monday defended the agency's use of informants within U.S. mosques, despite complaints from Muslim organizations that worshippers and clerics are being targeted instead of possible terrorists.
Mueller's comments came just days after a Michigan Muslim organization asked the Justice Department to investigate complaints that the FBI is asking the faithful to spy on Islamic leaders and worshippers. Similar alarm followed the disclosure earlier this year that the FBI planted a spy in Southern California mosques.
