It Couldn't Happen Hereb

Kuro5hin has a reminder that before 1984, before The Handmaid's Tale, before If This Goes On, Sinclair Lewis brought us a tale of American descent into Fascism, It Can't Happen Here. The full text is available online thanks to the University of Adelaide in Australia. Some of the parallels between Lewis's 1935 story and the present day are well worth heeding.
