"More than 60 years ago, George Orwell observed that the word 'fascism' had been so widely used as a political epithet that it had lost all meaning. With the word so freely and easily tossed about, it’s a wonder that no one has thought to apply it, if only for provocation’s sake, to structures that bear actual fascist symbols—those of the United States government, no less."
