Wait! Was Sowell right?

See the entry two down.
The usually great Thomas Sowell said he hasn't seen any fascism.
Maybe he was right.
Maybe -- and here see the entry immediately below -- he meant what the Bush administration and its leftover Supreme Court have brought us is NOT fascism ... but communism.
The Bush administration and the Court have certainly acted as if and legislated as if and ruled as if each of us is property of the state.
Their premises certainly seem to be similar to those of Stalinist Russia, possibly more than those of Nazi Germany, but not much different from those of Fascist Italy.
However neo-conservative principles ... maybe "principles" is the wrong word for neo-cons ... Neo-conservatives seem to have a philosophy quite similar to that of Benito Mussolini, a warfare/welfare state dedicated to building an empire.
Definitions get confused here, though. Mussolini was a Marxist; communism was known, in the early part of the 20th century, as red fascism.
Under whatever label, though, it is we the people, we the individuals, we the possessors, supposedly, of inherent rights, who suffer and decline, and it is the state, the government, which grows and prospers.
