Fascism in America?

My family was friends with Peter Drucker’s family when I was growing up.  I recently got back in touch with Drucker’s daughter, about my age.  Peter and Doris Drucker escaped from Austria in 1937 for America.  They were concerned about the Nazis.  Both Druckers were of Jewish extraction.

Peter died years ago, but Doris, a brilliant woman, lives on in Southern California, now 102.  I asked my friend if her mother saw any similarities between what is happening in America now and what she saw in the 1930s in Europe.

“My mother is paranoid,” my friend said.  “She’s says we need to keep cash on hand to bribe the guards at the Canadian border.”

Go read Jim Quinn’s last few posts at— “No hesitation targets” and “Wall Street titans screw you every day”.
