Im glad you titled this thread "Fascist America in ten steps.
It seems this list is written with America in mind. It is not a list of how to make a fascist society, as she left plenty out. Rather, I am fairly sure this author picked ten of the most controversial items she feels can be interpreted as anti democratic, and can be associated with at least one historical event that happened in a fascist state. Although an unsettling read, it is by no means proof that America is becoming a fascist state. Basically, she didn't set out to have a logical systematic look at this relationship of democracy v fascism, rather, she specifically set out from the start to prove that America is becoming fascist.
The changing world can be interpreted to form an infinite amount of conclusions. I tend to stray from the ones involving a collapse of the sky upon my head.

Im guessing after the revolutionary war, insurgents from many nations have come trying to take america for its own through religion, politics and secret societies, oh yeah, the military too.
Its all been corrupt for years, no one here can convince me otherwise with simplistic rhetoric.
