Call in to speak with the host
The U.S. had been moving toward a total police state since about 1913; but in 2012 the final nail in the coffin of democracy and justice was hammered into place with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act. NDAA allows for the U.S. military to arrest, imprison, and torture American citizen without due process of any kind! Contemporary America has adopted the identical police state, economic-military imperialist policies and operations that Nazi Germany did--though the enactment of those policies differs to some degree. The sound of Gestapo jackboots is now heard in the land of Jefferson, Lincoln, and Franklin Roosevelt.
We who live in the post-World War II period possess an immensely valuable symbol, even if we don't understand it or use it effectively: the example of Nazi Germany.
From this example we can discern that America, beginning in 2000, has become in essence the same kind of totalitarian dictatorship as Nazi Germany was:
A police state
A militarist dictatorship
An annihilative suzerainty
A regime that destroys workers
A terrorist fascist state
Persons sometimes want to quibble about contemporary America being, in essence, identical to Nazi Germany, pointing out that there are at present extermination camps in the United States. By saying that America is now identical in essence to Nazi Germany, we're acknowledging that not all features of the two societies are identical.
