Naomi Wolf on the ten steps from democracy to dictatorship

Highly recommended
It can happen here at Brasscheck TV (and produced by HotPotatoMedia) is a video of author Naomi Wolf explaining with great clarity the ten steps by which would-be dictators assault democracy (and how this relates to our current situation):

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
2. Create a gulag
3. Develop a thug caste
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
5. Harass citizens' groups
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
8. Control the press
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law
