One day, when we'll have some chance to think about fascism and totalitarianism, we'll understand that, unlike what History Channel may keep reminding us of, fascism wasn't specific to Hitler or Stalin.

one should point out more so that america is Nationalist in such an extend as was europe during the Fascist states of the 1930s
and that isn't a description of Fascism, thats totalarianism, Fascism is National Socialism, a state run in the interests of National Unity, National Welfare, Centralised Power, Cult of the Personality and the struggle, Fascism can co-exist with peace, unions, free press and democracy, some could argue more so than modern capitalist 'democracy'.

Under fascism, the State owns the means of production. Heavy government regulation of the economy. Where do you get 'concentrated private control' anyway?

im not a fan of communism ,but surely forcing democracy on countries that dont want it is wrong aswell?

It's truly amazing how some people still think the rest of the world hates america because they're envious. For god's sake, they kill, they rob, they control. For dictators, why is it no one mentions how AMERICANS put dictators in the latn american governments in the seventies because they were afraid of lefties? We have better education, free education, we can think and do as we please, we have money problems, because AMERICANS took part on a billionare robbery to our founds. And btw people, America is a continent, not a country.

You rock so so much. Thanks for posting this. By the way, no I'm not american, no I'm not even socialist (though not capitalist either) and yes, I hate the US as a concept but no, I don't hate americans. I just hate how a good 300 million people live ovblivious to their countrie's crimes and don't even vote but we have to let that son of a bush tell us what to do? We ALL vote, and that doesn't even guaranty democracy, how is it democracy for them?

why is it that people think the nazi party was a facist party, the swaztika seriously isnt a facist symbol, if you recall history the nazi party allied with the facists, the italians, and another history lesson the nazi party was a socialist party, not as extreme as the communists but to the left none the less. oh and the nazi party only got into power because of the labourers.

and if your wondering im a Marxist, i just learn about the things i attack before i do.

good idea though keep it up

"masterfilth" implies that the artist's anti-americanism must be because the artist if from Spain (ein auslander) -- from where he can't possibly hold valid and informed opinions about american malculture, etc.

illogical invalidation to avoid debate is, at best, disingenuous; at worst, it arises from blind, provincial ignorance of the rest of the world (in the western world, this is predominantly and amerikan disease).

then comes the trite and timeworn -- and wholly shallow disclaimer -- a preface to avoid any talk of imperfection, not to mention outright flaws and even criminal activity in our dominant institutions. it's most espoused by barking talk-radio hosts and the likes of bill o'reilly, et al.

"...although america is not perfect by far..."

true enough -- "not perfect BY FAR." but this catchphrase often implies or is followed by a sentiment that says "Hey, this is Amerika v. 6.0, and this is the best we can do." same thing you get when the topic turns to the tens of thousands of americans who'll die this year for lack of proper medical care -- " hey, it's the best we can do." a lame excuse preferred by our masters to ignore rampant oppression.

"it is prosperous..."
True enough, for only for those who can pay. Don Rumsfeld and his Bechtel buddies are certainly prospering along with Dick Cheney and his Halliburton fat-cats as they suck up the latest pile of blood money. most of us see little prosperity, and the wage-slave class has precious little time to enjoy the scaps thrown our way.

"and everyone always hates and envys what they want."

this is the old libertarian, now " neo-conservative" pap that all protest against our masters arises from envy of their riches. we don't want riches. we certainly don't want their ridiculous suits and pretentious automobiles. we would like some job security, however. we would love adequate health care without regard to our class or station. and we'd really like to have time with our families BEFORE 8pm rolls around. and we'd like our vacations to stop getting shorter or not be guilt-tripped for taking that rare time off.

the "everybody envies our prosperity argument" almost exclusively offers comparisons of the US to bedraggled third-world countries. "Yeah, Amerika has its problems, but look at those poor people in Ghana -- now stop complaining.

more faulty logic that falters on false premises -- the analogy can't stand. here's an elementary lesson, guys: compare 3W countries to like countries; compare western industrialized states to their counterparts. and that's when the "we have our problems, but..." assertion crumbles. damn few europeans are gripped by envy for the anachronistic "American Dream" or much of anything about America. especially if they drop by for a lengthy visit and see how all too many of us try to live. or not live.

"What they want - good economy, jobs, diversity, etc..."

Either this writer is at the top of the food chain, where's there's precious little room (found near the moral high ground where the air is thin and addles even sound consvervative minds) -- or, simply put, the writer is deluded, lying, watching too much Faux News, or perhaps is employed by the "Justice" Department. or, maybe he aspires to the ruling class.

"Ever been here?"

as if by coming here, and by sticking close to the tourist destinations, our traveling spaniard won't see the wretched refuse of our teeming shores, or see how the old Horatio Alger myth was long ago replaced by a corporate ruling class who imprison workers in cubicles, granting only the slightest of vacations, while providing the world's most threadbare insurance coverage -- if any. today's american worker is on the job more than at anytime in our history and it only gets worse. if you do drop in for visit to the latest version of the Amerikan empire, ask a wage-earning citizen about mental-health coverage -- oughtta be be good for a laugh. You'll hear that it's "too expensive" or "it's the best we can do." You'll hear the latter phrase a lot. besides, we like our mentally to grow up untreated so we can invest in massive, privately owned prison systems.

i DO live here and have so for all but five of these past 47 years. the five years in Deutschland showed me that our European neighbors have the civilization gig down and that governments CAN provide health care for all without resorting to despotism. Thanks to George W. Bush and the gaggle of oil-company exec who usurped the White House, we've got the highest unemployment rate in decades -- since the last coven of cheap-labor conservatives gave us hearty screwing. Indeed, the "good economy" in terms of jobs available and potential for recovery, is the worst since the Great Depression. Some 18,000 of us were killed by insurance companies last year when the less endowed among us had to either abandon or compromise treatment for life-threatening illnesses such as cancer. I've a dear relative who will soon succumb to a heart condition because she's exhausted here "benefits" and can no longer afford most of her medications. Not only have our jobs been sent across borders, but getting wholesale-price drugs from Canada will no longer be an option. I know ... I've heard all too often: "It's the best we can do."

Just read the definition of "fascism" in almost any dictionary. Our current regime solidly fits the bill: An unholy alliance 'twixt government and corporate interests is obscured by beating the drums of nationalism, as our former prosperity is stolen to extend the reach of empire.

I know -- we were taught to think like good little Americans, and pretend the foreign adventures were about liberating oppressed peoples ... the same political dope fed to the poor bastards in the USSR. Our current fascist regime has its lessons: no more single charismatic dictators (replace them with cartels and appropriate the lingo of democracy) and equate nationalism with "patriotism." They also traded in the jackboots and paramilitary attire (gave 'em to our cops) for three-piece tailored suits and briefcases. They also shed the swastika, the "Christian" cross and the stars n' stripes can well suffice. Keep the masses at work so they don't have time to READ the news (they'll have time for the simplified pap on cable-TV) and distract them with plenty of ridiculous arguments about abortion, school prayers, gawdy Ten Commandments monuments, gay marriages, bonehead movies stars seeking political office -- all the weapons of mass deception.

It's working pretty well. As for a visit, kind artist, do so at your own risk, remembering that nearly any amerikan without regard to their untreated mental illnesses (mad cowboy disease is prevalent) can pick up a gun posthaste at the nearest Wal-Mart (one per city section, two per suburb) -- and they love to play with them. And don't forget to bring a duffle-bag loaded with cash. We call this "health insurance."

"the best we can do."

fact is, it's not. we need only the courage of others who share that ideal. the same people who brought us the five-day work week, the eight-hour work day (now a relic), minimum wage, (despised by the corporate class) mandatory health coverage -- all despised by cheap-labor conservatives who only care about the unborn (Carlin: " If you're pre-born, you're okay; if you're pre-school, you're f***ked";) will never give up. they've got workers over a barrel, just where they want them.

Think about adding some flames to your pic. Otherwise, you've nailed it, by capturing the sorry essence of the American Empire.

May it fall.

Why is it that the knee jerk response from some people is "You must be envious of me or my country?" That would seem to me to be the biggest cop out available and shows an unwillingness to even try to think. If someone makes a comment about me OR my country (Australia) I assume they have a reason for it, I don't jump around like a 10 year old child chanting "your just jealous". That would just be gutless.

Well done image, point taken.

if you were from america i'd call you an ignorant child, but since your not, i'm just going to assume you are envious of our country. this is incorrect on so many levels...

we here in america are not trying to make ourselfs look better than the rest of you, we do not (normally =p (Razz) ) put down other countries. we help out in just about every fuckin war, and we feed the worlds economy by having the most travelers! explain to me why the world hates us? oh wait i know! because we are filthy fuckin rich! and do you know why we are rich? because we have a government that has never controlled us like the former governments of your countries. hate us if u want.. but remember, we do not try to impress, we are just that damn good
pyromanin Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2003
@31uc1d. look. yes, USA 'helps' in wars. but only when USA has some advantage of it, too. they also 'help' so much that many governments have no say in their own countries anymore.
look at the foreign politics of the US- not at the headlines which are made to sound nice, but at what this really means to the people- and then you'll understand why just about the whole world hates US foreign politics.
but this pic is not really about the foreign politics- but rather at how usa works inside. seeing that the average american has little clue what is going on in the world due to things like cencorship (yes, freedom of opinion and expression, just that some people are freeer to speak than others, and some opinions never make it to the public) it doesn't surprise me how you go on defending it.

@roofy great message :-) simple and to the point = very effective.

but i think you could have taken more time for the details. the blue of the US flag is a bit darker than the one you used, and you could have gone for a different font, and overall take some time for the composition.
31uc1d Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2003
first off i know what the foreign policies are like.. dont get me wrong.. and really i dont care... know why i dont care?!? cuz i cant do shit about it so dont bitch at me. when i turn 18 and i am able to vote, then by all means, u have the right to be getting angry with me. but as it is.. there is no validity to your response.
pyromanin Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2003
@ 31uc1d
sorry if you felt as if I was bitching at you as a person.
just because you can't yet vote, doesn't mean that you have to agree with or defend your government when sb critizies it. and this is what it seemed to me. sorry if i got something wrong there.
31uc1d Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2003
