Speaking of the Ur Fascists...

I opted to pick up a copy of American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America and so far find it a most interesting read, if for nothing else than the starting point that is the 14 ways to look at a brownshirt by Umberto Eco.

It does concern me that in the "you might also like" section we find "Conservatives without conscience" and "It can Happen Here"....

Is it just me, or is it a bit distressing that Umberto Eco's Eternal Fascism: 14 Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt was first cited in 1995???

Ah yes.... what has happened since then...
