Totalitarian United States?

We need to take a long, hard look at history and learn from it. Every totalitarian regime has come to power by devaluing and removing funding north_korea_10from the arts; devaluing and cutting aid to the poor, the disabled, and the elderly; devaluing higher education and favoring so-called “workforce development,” which is really nothing more than ensuring the masses are uneducated and compliant; and then instilling fear among the simple-minded that our way of life is in danger if they don’t comply – and eventually inform on their neighbors. All of these things are the talking points of the Republican controlled Congress and Republican Governors. It would probably be good to practice your goose-step now.
