Default Fascist America, in 10 easy steps

Did anyone read this essay when it came out a year and a half ago?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2007/apr/24/usa.comment

To think that since then, the FISA bill was passed, making it okay for the gov't to monitor any communication US citizens have with anyone outside the US.

And that the First Brigade has since then been deployed to the US for a year to assist in quelling civil unrest (rather than just returning home our National Guard troops, whose job that really is, but are not under the direct control of the President).

With now over a million people on the US's "no-fly" list, the wiretapping, and the arrests, incarcerations without trial, torture and murders of US citizens considered "terrorists" (read: enemy of the state), I'm starting to wonder how the US we live in now is different than the "horrible" cold-war USSR we were taught to fear as children.

Am I the only one?
