Towards ‘Tyrannical-totalitarianism’

Combining terms… to help pinpoint a description (which is fitting in this current domestic socio-political era)

Fasces-DT-Brittanica

“The fasces was carried by the lictors, or attendants, and was characterized by an ax head projecting from a bundle of elm or birch rods about 5 feet (1.5 metres) long and tied together with a red strap; it symbolized penal power. When carried inside Rome, the ax was removed (unless the magistrate was a dictator or general celebrating a triumph) as recognition of the right of a Roman citizen to appeal a magistrate’s ruling. The discovery of a miniature iron set of fasces in a 7th-century-BCE Etruscan tomb at Vetulonia confirms the traditional view that Rome derived the fasces from the Etruscans. The Roman emperors, beginning with Augustus in 19 BCE, had 12 fasces, but, after Domitian(reigned 81–96 CE), they had 24; dictators, 24; consuls, 12; praetors, 6; legates, 5; priests, 1. Lowering of the fasces was a form of salute to a higher official.

Benito Mussolini’s Fascist Party of Italy was named for the fasces, which the members adopted in 1919 as their emblem. The Winged Liberty dime, minted in the United States from 1916 to 1945, depicts the fasces on its reverse side.” Source: https://www.britannica.com/topic/fasces

Deal-breaking with Global ramifications, not just Atlantic City. WAY MORE good diplomacy is needed but this is the modus operandi in use by the executive branch of our federal government.

Tyrannical Totalitarism
