Contemporary Fascism?

Here's one I really don't like: Morphosis' new Federal Courthouse in SF. Despite its pretenses toward transparency, and despite the "balancing" effect of being shaped somewhat like a pair of scales, this is an imposing structure that seems to emphasize the state security apparatus rather than embody a notion of justice and equality. Something about this building seems to say, "We suspend habeas corpus!"
