Oh here we go.
I was expecting this next steaming pile from the government for some time now. It's the next natural step toward fascism.
I remember making a post to the effect of "Next, they'll be telling you that fellow Americans are the enemy, maybe they'll call them
Wow... was I on the money! (Other than the chosen name).
Okay. Essentially, one of the requirements for fascism to take root, is the people have to believe they are being attacked from within. They need that
assurance to justify the need for harsh military-like policing within their own nation.
Next step. Either homeland security, or a new "defensive" branch of the government will be assigned the task of intercepting and eliminating home
What you don't realize, is these home grown threats usually consist of nothing more than people who have forgotten their ID (Papers please?) at home.
That, and visible minorities whom local enforcement feel have no right being in their city.
It sounds radical... but this is how it happens. And has happened way too many times through history.
Ask anyone who's ever lived in such conditions... the one thing they will ALWAYS say is "I didn't think it could ever happen here."
I knew they'd be claiming there'd be home grown threat for some time... basically turning the "People" into the "Enemies of the state".
The problem is, as is with all paranoia, you will see what you want to see. There is, and has always been, people who do damage. Vandals, Arsonists,
and your regular criminal gangs... you used to point to them and call them what they are... now they will be pointed to and simply labeled home grown
This will justify harsher enforcement in those areas. Arrests of anyone not fitting the description of true patriot Americans. (whatever that is)
And everyone who does fit the description... well... pray you don't forget your identification when you leave the house.
Of course, fascist actions from the government will naturally be met with resistance from the people.
Which will only embolden the government with further justification to lock areas down.
Basically, imagine the popular kids in high school deciding who can and can't have their hall passes... only, it's enforced with guns and
You can say it will never happen.
And that's exactly how it DOES happen... because you thought it wouldn't.
You want to know why someone would go to such lengths to have control over their population?
They ran for office because they wanted power... you think now that you've given it to them, they'd stop seeking more? lol.
It really does amaze me, how so many people can watch bills being passed which place greater control over the people, without stepping back, looking
at them as a whole, and realizing where it's all heading.
