  •  Call it corporate-fascism. That's the actual... (15+ / 0-)

    derivational morphology.

    It's a sort of kinder, gentler brand of fascism. Go to work, use your Smartphone to check in on Facebook and Twitter once or twice a day, and you'll probably be hunky-dory. (unless you have a habit of going all subversive on social media)

    That's meant to be [only kinda] snarky.

    But this isn't.

    Once corporate-fascism becomes deeply-rooted in society, strong, prolonged resistance to it on a mass scale can quickly cause it to become the vehicle for full-on, jack-booted totalitarianism.

      And every day I think about what I can do to stop this.

      And how to make the fuckers pay for this.

      I'm sure there are millions of people just like me.

      Someone's gonna figure it out.

      We chose democracy, because the alternative was so often 'blood in the streets'.

      Who was the person who invented the guillotine? Has it come to that again?

      We'll get you eventually.

      When you've got nothing left to lose....

      Note to the 'minders': Suck on that, you fascist enabling assholes.  Killing me will only inspire others further.

      The Fail will continue until actual torches and pitchforks are set in motion. -
