History: The 14 Points of Fascism have been posted in Du GD more than

5 times in the past. Apparently we can no longer refer to history in DU GD.

This place is really going down hill.

4. That is one of them. I read this speech of VP Wallace in the early 2000s

and was concerned about where we are heading. Was even more concerned today so I earmarked it for further use and when I went back it had been removed because it did not belong in this forum.

Unlike the one you just posted the one today was the full speech.

Oh, well there are other places besides DU to find history.

17. Aside from PeaceNikki not being on MIRT and unable to ban you, and even if she was she

couldn't ban you due to your longevity and number of posts so no, that was not an open threat to ban you. That was copy/pasting the copyright policy of DU. Admin takes copyright issues seriously since they were threatened in the past with lawsuit.

That link is at the bottom of every single page in DU. Look down on each and every page and you will see it.

were lacking. That was my point. You mistook PeaceNikki as being on MIRT and able to ban you. You said you didn't know who was on MIRT so I gave you that information. Perhaps others might not know how to find out who is on MIRT and read my post and learn also.

I brought her attention to a policy here. I didn't threaten her in any way. My intent was to bring it to her attention so she could edit it to be in compliance if she chose. She freaked out and read something into it that wasn't there, deleted it, then accused me of threats and turned it into a very odd conversation.

The end.

Wallace wrote this just either during or just after WWII and I assume that did not have to be explained then as the Holocaust was very much in the minds of the world.

11. Here ya go. Wallace's full speech/article on The Dangers of Fascism.



The Danger of American Fascism

Henry A. Wallace

An article in the New York Times, April 9, 1944.
From Henry A. Wallace, Democracy Reborn (New York, 1944), edited by Russell Lord, p. 259.

1. On returning from my trip to the West in February, I received a request from The New York Times to write a piece answering the following questions:
What is a fascist?
How many fascists have we?
How dangerous are they?


2. A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends. The supreme god of a fascist, to which his ends are directed, may be money or power; may be a race or a class; may be a military, clique or an economic group; or may be a culture, religion, or a political party.


3. The perfect type of fascist throughout recent centuries has been the Prussian Junker, who developed such hatred for other races and such allegiance to a military clique as to make him willing at all times to engage in any degree of deceit and violence necessary to place his culture and race astride the world. In every big nation of the world are at least a few people who have the fascist temperament. Every Jew-baiter, every Catholic hater, is a fascist at heart. The hoodlums who have been desecrating churches, cathedrals and synagogues in some of our larger cities are ripe material for fascist leadership.


4. The obvious types of American fascists are dealt with on the air and in the press. These demagogues and stooges are fronts for others. Dangerous as these people may be, they are not so significant as thousands of other people who have never been mentioned. The really dangerous American fascists are not those who are hooked up directly or indirectly with the Axis. The FBI has its finger on those. The dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.

So with that... I have policy documents to look at... but it is not just republicans anymore. And that is another moment of clarity.

Oh and I will add, none of that to be posted here. I mean, government documents might also somehow, I don't know how, violate some form of copyright. That reduces my what I can post to the color of the sky... wait, that might be NOAA... and who knows maybe NOAA or the NWS might hold some copyright as well.

33. Still, they have gotten more stringent since then. Sometimes things aren't alerted on,

but Admin has said they contact those whose copyright violations are alerted on. It is up to Admin what to do about copyright violations. Not Hosts who lock OPs for not meeting a forum's Statement of Purpose, not Juries who rule on what they see as DU community standards, not MIR Team which looks out for newbies signing up with Malicious Intent.

I am just trying to provide information for you and others, I'd appreciate it if you'd drop the snark. Thank you.

40. I suggest you ask Admin in the Ask the Admin forum so they can clear this up as it very well

could be and would be nice to know. They take a while to answer questions in ATA as they have busy lives off DU, but it would be nice to know if it is open source or copyrighted. Would you like to ask them, or would you like me to ask them as I will but don't want to step on your toes if you chose to.

Thanks.

42. OK. I'll go ask Admin since they are the ones who decide copyright stuff, not general DUers, hosts

juries or MIRT. I'll be back and edit in a link so you can check later to see what they say.

Question about copyright vs open source info

There is a thread leading from another about copyright vs open source stuff, specifically The 14 Points of Fascism. I volunteered to ask if they fall into copyrighted stuff and need to stay within the 4 paragraph rule, or if they are open source and can be posted in full?

Here is the thread.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027111702
Which stemmed from this thread
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=7110876

Here is one source listed in the thread
http://newdeal.feri.org/wallace/haw23.htm

It has been posted on DU in full in the past, but not sure if that was because it wasn't noticed breaking the copyright rule, or if it is ok to post in full as it is widely spread about the net.

Advice? Thank you.

44. Ask then about active defense of copyright under Tittle XVII

 

and how copyright lapses when material is not defended over 10 years.

That is US Copyright Law by the way. This particular piece has been posted like every where in full since it was published in 2002.


And you are correct I am just an ignorant fool that has no clue, but at this point, message not just received, tripple and quadruple received.

85. I said admin has gotten more stringent about copyright issues. I also gave information

of how to find who was on mirt, and posted a question in ATA asking if this is a copyright issue or not, hoping they would clarify. I posted the ATA link and question elsewhere in this thread.

I also gave information about mirt not being able a long term duer and that a DU member cannot simply ban another one. I may be overly pedantic, but there seems to be confusion about these issues and I find having true information to be a positive thing, maybe sometime else will read it and be informed.


I am trying to give information and find out what admin thinks about this as I do not know.

I hope this clarifies what I am saying.

I've not between posting much in the greater DU recently, have no clue what is going on with Nadin. I have not read much from her or replied to her in recent times, same as most of DU. And certainly not picked on anyone except a few frequent flyer nasty zombies (have you notice name removed showing up a lot? Yay for us who were volunteering on mirt).


But when I see someone misrepresenting what mirt does, or a long timer expressing fear they will get banned for not following the copyright rule, I have, and will continue, to post accurate information. When I see someone breaking the copyright rule, I remind them of it like I did in post 54 in this thread to Octafish. Civilly, politely, without snark or insult because yes, I truly believe no one knows everything and sharing information is good.

To claim I do so as a personal vendetta or for one of those "not an attack" reasons you gave is dead wrong and an apology is in order.

92. This sort of reply shows why I have not between posting much recently.

To claim sharing information about the forum and offering to ask admin for clarification if the thing talked about in the OP is within copyright rules or not means I am attacking is outrageous and exactly the sort of thing you are complaining about.

Answering someone, sharing info about du, offering to help get clarification is "attacking"? No. I am not the bad guy here for trying to help.

Show me where I've been targeting Nadin or apologize for your attack.

39. What Hannah Arendt said was the goal of ''Wholesale Surveillance''...

The goal of wholesale surveillance, [font color="green"]as (Hannah) Arendt wrote in “The Origins of Totalitarianism,” is not, in the end, to discover crimes, “but to be on hand when the government decides to arrest a certain category of the population.” [/font color]And because Americans’ emails, phone conversations, Web searches and geographical movements are recorded and stored in perpetuity in government databases, there will be more than enough “evidence” to seize us should the state deem it necessary. This information waits like a deadly virus inside government vaults to be turned against us. It does not matter how trivial or innocent that information is. In totalitarian states, justice, like truth, is irrelevant.

Chris Hedges, The Last Gasp of American Democracy



We are approaching what Oliver North had to take behind closed doors.



The Shredding of Democracy

excerpted from the book

The Secret Government

by Bill Moyers
Seven Locks Press, 1988

EXCERPT...

COLONEL NORTH (Iran-contra hearings, I987):

This lieutenant colonel is not going to challenge a decision of the commander in chief, for whom I still work, and I am proud to work for that commander in chief. And if the commander in chief tells this lieutenant colonel to go stand in the corner and sit on his head, I will do so.

That notion troubled Inouye, a combat hero of World War II. He reminded North of the military code, of a soldier's duty.

SENATOR INOUYE (Iran-contra hearings, 1987):

The uniform code makes it abundantly clear that it must be the lawful orders of a superior officer. In fact it says, "Members of the military have an obligation to disobey unlawful orders." This principle was considered so important that we - we, the government of the United States, proposed that it be internationally applied in the Nuremberg trials. And so in the Nuremberg trials we said that the fact that the defendant -

BRENDAN SULLIVAN, counsel to Colonel North:

Mr. Chairman, may I please register an objection?

SENATOR INOUYE:

May I continue my statement?

MR SULLIVAN:

I find this offensive. I find you're engaging in a personal attack on Colonel North, and you're far removed from the issues of this case.

North's lawyer deflected Inouye, but some of North's fellow officers watching on television took issue with the colonel.

and that is nice, becuase I suspect it will be needed.

Oh I need to keep within the parameters of the copyright policy, It is silly, but every time we post OUR WORDS are actually copyrighted under Title XVII. I love it when people first issue threats, then back down, and do not understand the first thing about commons, how you defend your copyright, and all that. The fact that that list has been circulating in full over now two decades means the copyright is now open source. But I do not expect people who do not work with copyright at this point to know, or care about that... or for that matter not to be selective about it.

To help in the round-up of foreign agitators in the event of an armed US response to the communist threat in Central America, Ollie North and the REX-84 plans called for help from the Michigan Militia types. Web Archive still has the basics:

From there, who knows who'd be next? Minorities in general, people who opposed, liberals, Democrats...Going from what passes for discourse these days, I imagine conservatives would be among the last rounded up.

94. And the only question is why. And when I think about it I think it comes

down to two related issues: wealth inequality and white male supremacy.

There is a great deal of fear that white males are going to be replaced in the system and as usual they do not blame the rich who they hope to be someday.

Instead they blame anyone they can outside of that group. One learns real fast when they live on welfare that the middle class never blame the rich - it is always the poor. Same old story.

I think that the other problems we face: climate change, continual wars, droughts, food prices, housing prices, outsourcing, etc. only play into this as they begin to touch the middle class and cause them to start disappearing.

IMO that is why we are moving so rapidly toward the fascism that those 14 points tell us about.
