    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    Not bad but not great either. I see fascism kind of like entropy for governments. People in charge always feel they need a little more power
    to do their jobs better. Like police always need that one extra "tool" to fight crime. They are never pushing for less power or less control.
    It is human nature. That is one thing I always admired about the US constitution. They have a system for revolution built right in just in case that happens.
    The second amendment is there to make sure the people always have the means at their disposal to overthrow the government if it gets to corrupt.
    In fact that was one of the major signs of fascism that is missing from that video, an end to private firearm ownership. I think things like strong encryption should be covered by the second amendment although I did need Neal Stephenson to point it out to me.

    That's a good point and the main reason Britain is ultimately going to shoot past the U.S. on the race to the bottom.

    I have not given up on the UK. They could still turn it around.
    They have a history of going to far one way and then a backlash.
    Maybe we will get a neo victorian age after all?

    anyone else slightly unnerved by the phrase "both your political parties" last I checked most places have more than two, that someone aware enough to produce this little piece made the slip of mentioning only two is in my mind a very good sign things are going bad.
