A Sermon on Fascism

Sermon: Living Under Fascism : Davidson Loehr: "It is both accurate and helpful for us to understand fundamentalism as religious fascism, and fascism as political fundamentalism. They both come from very primitive parts of us that have always been the default setting of our species: amity toward our in-group, enmity toward out-groups, hierarchical deference to alpha male figures, a powerful identification with our territory, and so forth. It is that brutal default setting that all civilizations have tried to raise us above, but it is always a fragile thing, civilization, and has to be achieved over and over and over again. "

God bless the Unitarians for understanding what every religion is trying to teach us, as opposed to what so many religious demagogues are spewing forth. This is a fantastic article exploring the nature and meaning of fascism, which will help you to understand that it is NOT a hyperbole to state that the US is moving in a clearly fascist direction.
