USA: a democracy or a fascist regime

Hate crimes, xenophobia, islamophobia, warmongering, ultra nationalism, climate change denialism and economic mismanagement is on the rise in USA for a long time. It is easy to blame US President Elect, Donald Trump for this phenomena. However, this is a long term trend which finds its roots in colonialism. The Western elites perpetuated racism in all policies.

During recent election campaign Trump said the US election was being "rigged" by a "corrupt media" At another occasion he said,"it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system".

The false sense of superiority entrenched in the Western psyche is the root cause of perpetual racism in the West. The existence of slavery and its consequences are still hounding the West in general and USA in particular. Universities don't have enough students from minorities but jails are full of offenders from  minority groups.

The West is going to learn its lessons in a hard way. Continued decay in the economic, social and political life of the West will bring its eventual demise. It is too late to turn the wheel of the time. The so called democracy in the West is showing its true face through the rise of fascism.
