Much has been made of the concept of a “national security state” since the attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon on September 11, 2001. However, little research has been performed as to what changes in this direction actually mean. Here, I argue that the changes in foreign and domestic security policy since 2001 have endangered democratic processes and moved the United States closer to fascism. The first chapter searches for a “generic” concept of fascism that can be used for this examination, taking care to describe fascism based on structural elements. The second section examines long-term movements in American society that could have opened the way for fascist processes, paying particular attention to the emergence of the New Right and to psychological factors related to mass “apathy.” The concluding section looks at government policy since September 11 – including the War on Terror, USA PATRIOT Act, National Security Doctrine, school vouchers, and redistricting – to examine structural elements of a possible shift towards fascism as well as long term dangers to democracy.

After graduating magna cum laude in Political Science, English, and Philosophy in 2002, Devon completed a Masters degree in the Humanities in 2004. Devon was appointed to Chair his City's Parks and Recreation Board and Tree Commission in 2005, and was elected to help write a new City Charter for Edgewater in 2007. He is currently running for Mayor.
