One of the defining features of fascism was/is corporatism. In early June there were 20 ministers in Brown's government from the House of Lords, unelected. They represent a range of interest groups, largely big business but also other sections of 'the state'. Corporatism in other words.
If you aren't worried about our loss of freedom, liberty and the perversion of true free market capitalism, which is largely the reason for the current mess, I think you should be.
Here are Lawrence Britt's 14 Principles of Fascism. I'm not saying that all fourteen apply absolutely to our current State, but I would say that most do and others have been updated, such as racism. Race is now used by 'anti-racists' just as vilely as 'racists' in the past used it, two sides of the same coin.
