Creeping tyranny

Fascism has crept into liberal democracies with remarkable speed

I was barred from retweeting this. 

Tell me he’s wrong.

The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been two
hundred years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to complacency;
from complacency to apathy;
from apathy to dependence;
from dependency back again into bondage.

~ Sir Alex Fraser Tyler (1742-1813) (Scottish Jurist and Historian.)”
