Fascism is the inevitable end stage of capitalism.
Fascism is corporate control of the government, enforced by intensive scrutiny of the citizens through an elaborate spying system, preventative detention, suspension of civil rights, and an increase in violence used against the citizens.
The goal of capitalism is to maximize profits in the hands of the few. Once they succeed, as they have in the U.S., when a small percentage owns most of the wealth, they need to become brutal to stop the rest of the public from taking their share. That's where we are now.
Conclusion of this disaster? I think probably, unfortunately, disorganized uprisings by the hopeless, increased violence from the state, eventual collapse of the nation. Then we can try it again, those of us who survive.
