Slate's series on the end of America

"As Hitler and Mussolini prepared to storm Europe, fascism began to generate interest in the United States. In Sinclair Lewis' 1935 novel, It Can't Happen Here, an American president uses an economic crisis as a pretense to take over the media, imprison dissenters, and build his own private army (the Minute Men) into an indomitable force. Sound familiar? Almost like, "please send us fishy emails." Remember, it's your duty to report dissenters to your Obamanfuhrer.
