Remember Ward Churchill, the Colorado University professor who claimed (when stung by one of the most righteous internet smackdowns to date) that when he called 9/11 victims "Little Eichmanns," his remarks were "taken out of context"? Churchill was fired. Churchill sued the University. Now the jury has spoken. Their verdict? "We hate you all."
Do we need a new word for fascism? It's a perfectly good word to describe a form of state economic control, but its Nazi variant makes use of the word provocative. I'd suggest "phalangism," but no one would know what it means. Perhaps "corporatism," but that's already taken.
The blogger known as Charon QC is a British barrister who works in London's banking district. Not the sort to hang out with anarchists who call the counterman at Spar a "fascist" because he won't give them a discount on lager. But he's appalled by what he saw at the G20 summit protests, and produced some rather remarkable citizen Twitter journalism on it. I'll give you the blog version.
