    If you want to use the word fascist as a synonym for authoratarian, then yes. However, this then makes the term meaningless as a political descriptor.

    Many political systems are authoratarian, this does not make them fascist.
    Well it depends on the definition you use really

    Okay.

    The BCS records all recorded instances of crime.

    As you correctly state, not all crime is reported or known about, the 'dark figure' as it's known.

    Nevertheless, policy, public opinion, legislation all have to be based on something.

    The best possible source of information is the collection of available statistics...

    ...not your mother. Or your auntie or your uncle.
    To be honest, all statistics you read are outdated the second theyre recorded.

    Study Economics, its an evaluation point for every single statistic.

    The point still stands though, you base your argument off ever outdated statistics, i base mine off real life. Just looking at one side of my family, the ones who dont work and have Range Rovers etc..

    Yes, there are different interpretations and different manifestations of fascism. None of them include Mao and Stalin afaik.

    We're going round in circles.

    Even if national statistics are outdated. Even if they're years outdated and someone has spilled coffee over them so you can't quite make out a page or 2.

    They're still more reliable than YOUR personal experiences.

    Don't take my word for it. Try to get a loan at a bank using only the kind words of your relatives instead of your credit rating.

    ? I don't see that. Does the software give more weight to one's own threads on the Most Popular list or something?

    All of your threads have been deemed to be Silly, at least for the foreseeable future.
    Don't be so condescending please

    Dj1015 had no problem finding the thread!

    I don't think so- I was looking at the UK politics threads?

    Oh no. :no: You need to click the TSR logo and then click on the Most Popular Threads on TSR tab. This is the most popular thread on the WHOLE OF TSR not just the absurdly minor UK Politics forum.

    You just related the number of fraudulent claimants to someones credit rating.. Meh, perhaps they are more reliable than personal experiences, however, not reliable enough to constitute a real argument against benefit cuts.

    Don't underestimate the political importance of students. We are a huge potential force for change in society. That's why the authorities try to come down on us so harshly when we protest, as in the student protests against tuition fees. It is actually highly likely that efforts are underway from the political right to control this site.
    I don't know about the political right muscling in on this site en masse, but student opinion and action is definitely important. In recent history and even further back, students (or the up and coming generations) have played huge roles in change.

    There's also clearly unnecessary force being used far more frequently against students and protesters in general:

    Someone stated that human beings have a human right to healthcare.

    You disputed this.

    You were wrong to do so.

    What do 'natural rights' have to do with anything?

    Well we shouldn't have government policy based on reason and statistical evidence should we?

    Sounds altogether too sensible.
