Fascism Watch: All Of Your Warrantee Are Belong To Us

March 30, 2009

If this headline from Drudge doesn’t scream corporate statism, nothing does:

‘Starting today, the United States government will stand behind your warrantee’…

Still don’t get it? This link from Drudge Potato Al tries to explain it:

Strict government control over businesses is the essence of Fascism, or more precisely, Mussolini-style corporatism. As Mussolini said, “Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” Corporatism boils down to this: government tells industry (and labor) what to do and they do it for the supposed good of the country.

For the president of the United States to be able to, effectively, fire the head of a major corporation is not a road America has ever headed down before.

Part of what is so troublesome about all of this is that we HAVE been down this road before. When FDR’s Blue Eagle program was in effect, the government jailed a dry cleaner for charging less than what the government mandated should be charged for pressing a suit.

From Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism

libfascism by you.

The fact that we have been here before is part of what makes this all so frustrating. National Socialists are enacting fascists policies as though they have never been tried and failed before. They have been tried. They have failed.
