This Umair article is a little over the top. Well, actually, it is a lot over the top.

By Umair’s own definition, USA has been in a fascist society for a very long time:

  1. Enough harassment of Americans who favored the English king over Independence to force those Americans to immigrate to Upper Canada.
  2. Forced expropriation of lands held by Native Americans.
  3. Forced slavery of Africans.
  4. More forced expropriation of lands held by Native Americans.
  5. Forced annexation with the Kingdom of Hawaii.
  6. Institutionalized racism (much more in the past than today).
  7. Forced internment of Japanese Americans.
  8. Big Business and Big Government plowing through communities in the 1950s and 1960s in the name of “progress.” And probably before 1950.
  9. And a whole bunch of other things.

Umair hints of a Golden Age in America, when there were no fascists. I would like to know when that happened.

Last week, I published a Medium article that gave my hypothesis about the real reason for the impeachment process (Hint: it is not about ousting the current president). So far, only four readers. The Medium algorithms seem to favor Umair’s dystopia over my out-of-the-box perspectives and solutions.

What does that say about Umair’s readers?
