This is What Totalitarianism Looks Like

Doug Ross has your must-read of the day:

Funny how liberals try to tar conservatives, Tea Partiers and others who believe in the tenets of America’s founding as some sort of nascent fascists.

Because if you go down the official totalitarian checklist, it’s the progressive movement that is ticking off the requisite agenda items, one by one.

Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.[2] Totalitarian regimes stay in political power through an all-encompassing propaganda campaign, which is disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by political repression, personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror.

Let’s go down the list, shall we? Yes, we can.
