    Can this BE more fascist?!? Heavy-handed authorities?!? The control/neutralization of the media?!?

    We're seeing it now, folks. They blocked media coverage and used violence. If there were to be a retaliation in kind, do you think the media would be barred then? They're trying to entice acts from the occupiers that would justify them just physically and aggressively wiping out the protesters.

    The protesters need to continue civil disobedience. They can not respond in kind. But I fear it will get bloody somewhere before long.

    And still there will be those that do not recognize just how radically right this nation has swung.

    May you find yourself constantly in the company of noble souls.

      I have the feeling that when this re-emerges (and it will because I see nothing getting better in this damned country), I wonder just how peaceful it will be.  Eventually, we will reach the same point as the Arab people where our lives are just intolerable and we won't back down.
