Submission + - Facist America in 10 Easy Steps

zyl0x writes: What would you do if your country was secretly being turned into a fascist regime? An article at The Guardian outlines the 10 steps taken by all fascist countries to rob their citizen's of freedom. Apparently, we're already at step 8. How far will they have to go before we start standing up for ourselves? Or is it too late?
From the article:

It is very difficult and arduous to create and sustain a democracy — but history shows that closing one down is much simpler. You simply have to be willing to take the 10 steps. As difficult as this is to contemplate, it is clear, if you are willing to look, that each of these 10 steps has already been initiated today in the United States by the Bush administration.
