Author Naomi Wolf has written a new book called “The End of America – Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot“. She visited Stephen Colbert last week on the Colbert Report to talk about the “10 steps to fascism“ that she describes in her book.
There is video of her interview with Colbert here and here.
Vyan at the Daily Kos tooks a look at the “10 Steps to Fascism“:
During her little noticed appearance on The Colbert Report this week author Naomi Wolf mentioned a list of ten specific steps that can and will lead a country from Democracy and Freedom into Totalitarian Fascism – and unfortunately it appears that we’ve already ticked our way past all but one of those goalposts while hardly blinking an eye.
The Guardian has an article on her ten steps and that’s called “Fascist America, In 10 Easy Steps“:
From Hitler to Pinochet and beyond, history shows there are certain steps that any would-be dictator must take to destroy constitutional freedoms. And, argues Naomi Wolf, George Bush and his administration seem to be taking them all
Naomi Wolf points out that we have already seen the ten steps taking place in this country and warns Colbert that we may not have a year left to stop this descent into fascism and the loss of our democracy.
