tipping point

That outright facsism is taking root in America is obvious, if you can believe such a thing.

Many people don't understand. Democrats think they lost an election, but that the country is still basically there. Republicans feel oppressed by the liberals - a sad creature far fiercer in imagination than reality. So they snap up books like Ann Coulter's "How to talk to a liberal..." as if they were a protective fetish, not recognizing them for weapons in a fight against reason, republic and democracy.

This will come to a head with peak oil, if not sooner. (Got Dollars?)

Can you imagine the United States as an operating Fascist state? The media will be on every day, deny, deny denying it. That smell is what we replaced your neighbors with.

But the price of chocolate will keep going up. It will be new and improved.

There is a growing anti-intellectual movement in the conservative corners of the country.

Indeed, it is like a tug of war in our culture right now. As pointed out in the essay linked at the top, this is a classic precursor.

We'll see what happens soon enough. I tend to the US will schism, but we'll see.
