The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of fascism, outlining the 10 steps necessary for a fascist group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state and subvert the social/political liberty previously exercised by its citizens:

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
5. Harass citizens' groups.
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
7. Target key individuals.
8. Control the press.
9. Treat all political dissidents as traitors.
10. Suspend the rule of law.

The book details how this pattern was implemented in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and elsewhere, and analyzes its emergence and application in American political affairs since the September 11 attacks.

Wolf is a graduate of Yale and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford

Its about an hour long but its pretty good

I agree a lot with what your saying, but dont miss the forest for the trees here. Like you said it was a dated peice during the reign of George the younger
And if you look at the meat and potatos of what she is saying ,its hard to dispute the parrellels between modern day USA and the emergence of fashism in other states.

I think the most important thing she points out is the 10 steps how it was done in the past . The trampling of the constitution, and the similarities of what is happening in the US today.

I certainly dont agree with everything this woman writes , but I thought she had some good insight into whats happening in the US.
