Is America Yearning for Fascism? Chris Hedges Thinks So

Hedges argues that economic dislocation produces a yearning for a strong, totalitarian leader who will set things right. Dislocation and impoverishment also produce scapegoating. Danger lurks in the looting of the populace.

Hedges writes:

"If we do not immediately reincorporate the unemployed and the poor back into the economy, giving them jobs and relief from crippling debt, then the nascent racism and violence that are leaping up around the edges of American society will become a full-blown conflagration..."

I fear he is correct.
