This is what alarms me concerning our youth: not only are exceedingly too many young Americans falling under the spell of Christian idealism, they are also falling prey to the quiet, but utterly effective, fascism that grows new feet with every passing day.

When asked whether people should be allowed to express unpopular views, 97 percent of teachers and 99 percent of school principals said yes. Only 83 percent of students did.

I say this is fascism because one of the tenets of fascism as defined in Wikipedia is:

…a system of government resembling Mussolini’s, that engages in corporatism.

There are other facets of fascism that have shown themselves, but not in such fluorish and glory as corporatism has.  With our younger generations becoming more and more dependent on quick bites of news purposely worded to mislead or partisanize, there is no wonder why the youth ar elosing a grip on what was intended with the first amendment.  With educational institutions losing funding, corporatized schools are gaining ground and it is this in conjunction with our heavily monitored media that can pave the way for a new fascsim not seen in ages.  When children are left to the system to rot, they can only become robotic to survive.

Another excerpt from this Yahoo article:

Three in four students said flag burning is illegal. It’s not. About half the students said the government can restrict any indecent material on the Internet. It can’t.
