    i appreciate the corrections -- i should look up paxton's original piece, of course. And equally of course, i did pause a bit when i read the "mature democracies" thing -- clear even to an amateur student of history (as I am) that the German and Italian democracies of the 30s were not what one might call "mature."

    so much for finding the "serious article about US fascism I've been waiting for."
    tho i still find the identification of a transition in the moment when elected officials publicly ally with the extremists instructive.
