1. A perceived Powerful and Continuing Community Spirit - Fascist
counties tend to make constant use of slogans, mottos, symbols, songs,
and other propaganda to rally the people to their current cause. No
matter what the consequences are, people tend to look the other way or
even allow their tax money to be used in the name of community

2. Loss of Recognition for Human Rights - Because of the need for their
fundamental security, the people in a fascist county are persuaded that
their human rights and civil liberties can be ignored in certain cases
because of the "needs" of special interests.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - people are
rallied or bought into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to
blackball or eliminate a perceived common threat or foe (whistle
blower). Power brokers build themselves up by hiring others to knocking
others down through discrimination, coercion, elections, etc.

4. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes the media is directly controlled by
the government, but in most cases, the media strings are pulled
indirectly by the Syndicate money through advertising or sold out media
executives. Media outlets like 'COOL CLEVELAND' and ANGLE Magazine are
blatantly owned and operated by the special interest groups. Censorship,
is the key word here. Economic Fear is the motivational tool over the

5. Religion/Non-Profit Sector and Government are Intertwined -
Governments in fascist counties are pressured to use the most powerful
religion in the county as a tool to manipulate public trusts to their
favor. Religious and charitable rhetoric and terminology is common from
government leaders, even when the major tenets of the non-profit sector
are diametrically opposed to the community's best policies or actions.
The whole non-profit sector integrity is compromised for the benefit of
a chosen few.

6. Corporate Power is Protected - The business and non-profit
aristocracy of a fascist county often are the ones who put the
government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial
business/government relationship for a more powerful elite mafia.

7. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is
the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions, like in
certain east side neighborhoods are either eliminated entirely, or are
severely suppressed.

8. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - A Fascist county tends to
promote and tolerate open hostility to a higher level of Culture and
Academia. It is not uncommon for senior artists and other academics to
be censored, sanctioned or even arrested. Free expression in the arts
and letters is covertly attacked. Google search: "ICEAlity"

9. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist counties almost always are
governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to
government and community positions and use governmental power and
authority to protect their many, many, many friends on the public
payroll from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for
county resources and even treasured real estate to be misappropriated by
government leaders for special interest use. Business Poaching and other
unscrupulous tactics are on the rise.

10. Fraudulent and Bogus Elections - Sometimes elections are a complete
sham - like the recent ISSUE 31. Most elections are about obtaining more
money and taxes. Other times elections are manipulated by smear
campaigns against or even political assassination of opposition
candidates, and use of legislation to control business or peoples'
rights. Fascist counties also typically use their judiciaries (example:
community development corporations) to manipulate or control elections.

Fascism: An autocratic system of government, headed by an absolute
dictatorship, and characterized by strict social and economic
regimentation, aggessive nationalistic policies often accompanied by
racism, and forcible suppression of all criticism and opposition.
