Dominoes hardly, more like a slow progression. Like a frog in hot water. You throw a frong into boiling water it'll jump right out. However, place him in colc water then slower turn up the heat. The frog will be dead before it knew what hit him.
all of this is totally irrelavent to your initial statement though - your statement to me showed that you see the two economic models as good and bad, black and white, moral upstanding country, or opressive dictatorship. and as far as i know, socialism doesnt directly *cause* a facist dictatorship either.

this is not, and never will be the case at all, slow progression scaremongering or not.
