The 14 Features of Fascism

Umberto Eco’s list of 14 features of eternal fascism. These are important signs, which Eco notes, may never all be present, but if any one of these signs is present, regardless of the system in which they appear, there’s a problem to address. America is not a fascist country, but we exhibit enough of these signs to remind us that we’ve got work to do if we want to better ourselves and live up to our rhetoric of freedom and equality.
