And indeed, “Homeland”, just the term, is worrying. And that’s after they changed that logo. “Because we don’t learn much about European history, the setting up of a
department of “homeland” security – remember who else was keen on the
word “homeland” – didn’t raise the alarm bells it might have.”

Admit it: parallels with fascism in today’s America are strong. It may be hard to notice over a latte in Sanfran, discussing Facebook or something, but come in fresh from the outside, and it’s all there. Not that the US is fascist or totalitarian, but edging in that general direction? Yep. And that’s a big deal.
