This was first published on our Facebook page in 2014. It wasn't as obvious then, now it's undeniable. Fascism is much more than a governing technique, fascism is a mindset. Before a government becomes fascist it has to culture the minds of individual humans, narrow the individual's thinking to fewer and fewer intellectual options and opinions. Just as freedom, and freedom of thought is first of the personal mind so is fascism first of the individual. Viruses need a weakened immune system to flourish, narrow, ideological thinking weakens the intellectual immune system. Fascism is exactly like a mental virus, and it is fatal to the individual.
