    Actually, with each passing day I do think this is the word we need to start using.

    Call me old fashioned if you like.  We're living in Germany in the early 1930s.

    •  Oh I don't disagree (4.00)
      but too many people look at me like I'm a freak for even suggesting it.

      It is a very mixed blessing to be brought back from the dead.

      •  work up to fascist (none)
        Begin by using corporatist, authoritarian, single-party...
        •  Extremist (4.00)
          We need to hammer this word every chance we get along with radical, out of the mainstream, and fringe.

          People are utterly turned off by the fascist label as they think it's hyperbolic.  Ditto with authoritarian although I think that they are both apt descriptors.
