Unfortunately, as umair pointed out, fascism is about dividing up a stagnant economy. That is why fascism is developing in the United States and around the world. Sadly, getting rid of Trump will not end our march toward authoritarianism.

This authoritarianism began as far back as the 1980s or earlier. The reason why I want to write my family’s memoir is to demonstrate that fascism had begun in the 1980s in the United States because it was reflected in how the State took my parents’ children away from them after cutting social services they needed to support them inn 1981. I believe the entire story is a story of authoritarianism, a reflection of values the United States should turn far away from.

My observations of other people’s experiences with institutions in the country since that time does not reassure me that things have gotten better. Instead, I believe the stagnant economy has made things increasingly worse. There is only more authoritarianism. More fascism.
