VIDEO (MUST-SEE): NAOMI WOLF ON TODAY"S "DEMOCRACY NOW"
(WHAT did she say about yesterday's story in a British newspaper claiming that waterboarding would soon be used against American citizens? Anybody catch that? --RD)

In her new book, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, Naomi Wolf says the United States is on the road to becoming a fascist society, right under our very noses. Wolf outlines what she sees as the ten steps to shut down a democratic society and argues that the Bush administration has already implemented many of these steps. Wolf is the author of several books including the 1990s feminist classic, The Beauty Myth. The United States is on the road to becoming a fascist society, right under our very noses. Thats the premise of a new book by feminist social critic Naomi Wolf. Its called "The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot" and is already on the New York Times bestseller list.

Naomi Wolf outlines what she sees as the ten steps to shut down a democratic society and argues that the Bush administration has already implemented many of these steps. Wolf is the author of several books including the 1990s feminist classic, "The Beauty Myth.

Critics describe her latest book, The End of America, as a wake-up call to Americans to heed the lessons of history and fight to save their democracy before its too late. Naomi Wolf joins me now in the firehouse studio.

2. Thanks mmonk--we Tivo the show live every morning at 5AM
off of our community access channel, which broadcasts the feed from Free Speech TV.

Lately we watch the Today Show for about 5 minutes to see what the day's big propaganda or distraction stories will be in the corporate media, then we switch to Democracy Now and watch it over breakfast.

4. Right--we just get tired of all the "missing children" Natalie Holloway-type stories
and it's time to use the cell phone speed dial again to let elected officials know we are fed up with media industry consolidation. Randi Rhodes, I believe, said we have until December 8 to do this.
