10 steps to fascism

An interesting piece in the Guardian today about the creeping totalitarianism of the United States. It got me wondering how far down the road other regimes are. Zimbabwe are there, Russia not so far off, if at all. I've been critical of the British government in this regard in the past, but in those terms the current regime has a long way to go. I'm not sure we have a thug caste or a culture of dissent equalling treason. The rule of law has been bent many time, but I remain to be convinced it's irreperably broken. When the BBC becomes a government controlled organisation, then I'll properly start to worry.
