Naomi Wolf on the 10 Steps to Dictatorship and Why We are Headed There

An excellent interview with Naomi Wolf where she outlines the 10 steps to dictatorship and how the U.S. is being transformed into a closed society controlled by a few.
"Great dictators study each other and one of the steps they take is setting up informal prisons. Mussolini pioneered this. At first people don't care because only the marginal folks are dragged off, but later we see that civil society leaders in Germany were taken to these prisons. Which is why we should care about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo because history shows that what happened to them will happen to us".
