Americans may not realize it yet, but the United States under Bush is already more than three-quarters of the way down the road to fascism. The facts are all there, but Americans do not yet see this ominous truth. It can be found (albeit surely not exclusively) in a bird’s-eye view of numerous disparate but grand components: the enactment of the PATRIOT Act, the detentions at Guantanamo, the invasion of Iraq, the withdrawal from the International Criminal Court, the endorsement and promotion of the FTAA, the two prosecutions of Greenpeace and Lynne Stewart, the erosion and eradication of environmental protections, and a general policy of secrecy.

Opera allowed me to relax, sit back, and soak in my culture -- until last summer. That's when I realized operas were stocked with old fashioned Marxist critiques of capitalism and snide attacks on Western civilization -- and rotten to the core.
Given the following, it is a little difficult to understand why the US “captured” their old ally at this time? But I believe these notes and the article after it point to an improved environment from which to oppose U.S. imperial policies. Let’s take heart and keep up the pressure Spread widely and much MORE!
