No I’m not catastrophising.

The world is slowly lurching towards a fully fascist led America, India, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Argentina.

Instead people are either ignorant or blaming “wokeism”* for their problems.

I have no clue what to do and this is literally a car crash in slow motion.

I’m despondent because I’m going to be crushed under the boot when the time comes and my morals get in the way of my survival instinct.

Humans are repeating the mistakes of the past. It’s just so anxiety inducing.

*Woke is a useless term promulgated by fascists to dog whistle the things they really want to hate - feminism, socialism, LGBTQIA+, immigration, brown/black people, equality and diversity.

    You said everybody without a context of a country, which implies everyone around the world, not everyone in the USA. It’s okay though, I’ll forgive your stupidity in forgetting there’s people outside the US.

    Fortunately for me I am from one of those countries. It’s not like they’ve got guns either. Even if we did, what would people do? Start randomly shooting at people who we think are fascists?

      If you look really hard and read carefully, you’ll see I also said “the second amendment”, which is popularly known worldwide as part of, specifically, the United States Constitution. If you squint, you can also see I mentioned “MAGA chuds” – I don’t think Donald Trump is running a presidential campaign outside of the US. Thereby indicating I was, in fact, specifically talking about everybody in the US, at least if you have two brain cells to rub together. It’s okay, I won’t hold it against you if you don’t.

      It’s not like they’ve got guns either.

      yes I’m sure the fascists will abide by the legal system they’re… simultaneously working to dismantle or otherwise work around in order to destroy democracy. Yes. Definitely.

      Even if we did, what would people do? Start randomly shooting at people who we think are fascists?

      all that is needed for evil to prosper is for good men to do nothing.
