American fascism in the name of democracy is not very different from terrorism in the name of religion.

1) The United States (like all so called “Democracies”) has a sham of a Democracy

2) Most of America’s best allies are fascist governments

4) If terrorism is such a concern, why does the United States have a long history of funding terrorism around the world?

How exactly has American society subdued young Americans?
