America didn't start as a reaction to "English Fascism" as you put it, England barely had control over the colonies, and this was in part of the problem, also if America would not be allowed representation then why should they pay taxes? We all know the story...
We live in a society that is based on rights. But is there a line that can't be crossed?
Years ago, I would have said "Yes", but year after year, the moral fabric or our society fades away into the shadows. What do we have when morality is non-existent? Anarchy?
My point is that America started as a society to rebel against the fascism in England. Hundreds of years later, we have become so "Free" that we have lost all hope for structure.
To combat this, we turn to legislation. In the panic of the anarchy that "Freedom" has caused, we outlaw those very rights we swore to protect/
The rights that set us apart from fascism.
Look at us now. We have become the very thing we once fled from.
Back to where we started. All that work for nothing.
