Fascism Then and Now: A Special Report by Hereward Fenton
Since the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks many western countries have experienced an erosion of the freedom which I was brought up to believe was a guaranteed, non-negotiable part of modern society. In retrospect it appears that this freedom was only ever attained tentatively and required constant vigilance in order to prevent us slipping back into more barbaric forms of social organisation.
This backsliding has led to the global re-emergence of social and economic trends which I am calling fascist, although to the casual observer these may seem to have little in common with classic fascism of the early 20th century.
It is only by studying the underlying mechanisms of social control and economic manipulation that the current trends can be properly understood. This video identifies some of those trends with sources you can easily verify through an internet search.
It is hoped that this video will serve as a wake-up call and a warning to those who are still slumbering in ignorance of the approaching catastrophe.
If you agree with this video and find it insightful, please share it, preferably with those who are not yet awake to the threat which we face.
