FASCISM INC.: How America Has Become a Police State - 10 CD set History may repeat itself, but it never repeats itself identically. Since 9/11, George Bush's launch of the Patriot Act and Barack Obama's signing of the National Defense Authorization Act, the US has rapidly turned its back on the principles of freedom, justice and liberty engraved in the Constitution. Instead, in praise of militaristic domination, corporate greed and power, and the myth of American exceptionalism, Washington has written a template for the emergence of new fascism and a police state. The merger of government and private industry, eulogized by the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini and documented by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, is being witnessed today in the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, the taxpayer bailout of Wall Street, and the growing inequality gap between an oligarchic rich and America's working population.This 10 Audio CD series by awarding winning radio host Dr. Gary Null offers exclusive commentaries and interviews with many of the world's most progressive political scientists, historians and journalists who have the courage to raise their voices against the American fascism that increasingly defines the nation's political, economic and social landscape.
