Had lunch yesterday with my friend and former student, Paul Eppler. He pointed me in the direction of this piece by Umberto Eco, excerpted from a longer piece titled, Ur-Fascism. By ur-fascism, Eco means a basic template, consisting of fourteen bullet points, hiding behind most forms of fascism. 

For a fun, family activity, count how many of these bullet points correspond to rhetorical elements of Trump's campaign and presidential transition. I count thirteen!

I still can't believe Trump won. His campaign is opposed to what America has been since Columbus. America is a country with a diversified society that helps improve the economy and quality of life in the community, and protect its inhabitants. America stands for freedom, equality, solidarity, peace and humanity. Trump since his inauguration has ruined the reputation of America. I hoped that the next president fix what Trump destroys.

I don't really care about government, but since I'm devotee, I have to be updated with what is happening in the government. Like Donald Trump is now the elected president, Many people don't like Donald Trump because of his campaign. For me, even I don't like the person I will not jump to any conclusion and wait for what will his move while he is the president. I hope many people will not make any judgement to him, we don't know yet what will be his first move as a president. Thanks for sharing this, God bless you all.

I have never liked talking about this socio-political topics because I never got there point! Though this one makes really good point, I am not even sure if I am a pro -facist or what! Anyways, I think I will be considering other pieces of work as well before I jump to any conclusions.
