March 9, 2011 I wrote a post called "Bordering on literal fascism". Upon further review: no, it is not even close to literal fascism.
My bad. My only defense is that I really didn't understand a lot about politics, except through the lens of the American two-party system. Taking part in something as cataclysmic as the February protests left me shaken, and with few ways to try and make sense of it. Naturally I fell into the psychological/intellectual trap that plagues us here in America (not to say they are free of this elsewhere): Without any meaningful historical or political context everything is perceived as being either 'extreme' or 'moderate' with few other meaningful distinctions.
