What We Need To Fight Is Fascism

While campaigning in Florida, Trump made the following statement, "We're not supposed to have a socialist — look we're not going to be a socialist nation. We're not going to have a socialist president, especially a female socialist president, we're not gonna' have it, we're not gonna' put up with it." "Socialism" has always been a bad word for Americans, so Trump is associating this dirty word with Senator Kamala Harris. Having the government control every means of production is indeed unattractive, but this is not the brand of socialism progressives aspire for in this country. There is a lot of merit in providing everyone with a good education, preventive health care, and clean energy. Working for equity in education is not evil. Wanting that everyone has the means to see their doctor regularly is not wrong. Responding to the challenges of climate change is not immoral. What is in fact immoral is fascism.

The signs are clear, according to Timothy Snyder. We are heading towards tyranny. What is not right is providing good education only to society's favored or privileged members. What is not right is providing health care only to a selected few. What is not right is continuing our way of living based on carbon fuels with complete disregard for the next generations. What we need to fight is fascism. 

In this election, this is our choice. Do we stay with an administration that is allowing a few to control every aspect of our lives or do we change to one that exercises responsibility and works for the society as a whole?
