American fascism

There’s a good article on American fascism in The Guardian this week. It’s not sensationalist, but it is frightening and sad.

There’s a pandemic on that our governments continue to respond to in delayed and reactionary ways. There’s apparently no plan for actually dealing with covid which means the de facto plan is a dramatically degraded healthcare system, the death of our loved ones from covid and other preventable causes, and an indefinitely dragging economy.

This dramatic institutional failure will fuel fascism in America and many other places.

Canada has a lot of problems and is mismanaging the pandemic in many ways, but it’s not like America. I wish I could get more of my loved ones to immigrate here or elsewhere.

It’s Christmas and I hope you are snug with your loved ones and a tree and a good meal. Take care of one another.
