Within a month of the nation being attacked by terrorists, legislation that combated terrorism by suspending constitutional guarantees of free speech was championed by a popular leader. It was called the “Decree on the Protection of People and State,” and it passed despite the objections of concerned legislators and civil libertarians.
A new national agency was formed within a year that coordinated police and federal security. It consolidated unprecedented power under one leader. No, this is not President Bush’s newly won Department of Homeland Security—it was Hitler’s Office of Fatherland Security, the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and Schutzstaffel, better known simply as the SS.

Also their kids represent how the Party has made it unsafe to even live within the privacy of your own home. the kids are trained to spy on their parents and the Parsons children are an example of just how that works when the little Parsons girl turns her father over to the Thought Police.
Rather, like all banking investments ultimately turn out, it was an investment in the control of human beings.
Just because some corporate individuals were connected to the USSR does not mean that corporations are connected to communism. I think this is a weak attempt to make excuses that this was not capitalism or any fault of deregulation. In a communist system the corporation cannot exist as wealth is distributed equally toward the public.....
Yup, this is a scandal & potential PR disaster in the making.
Regarding top notch investigative reporters: perhaps 3 years ago the Sunday magazine of the New York Times had such a reporter visit me for several days, who documented all the evidence, and was salivating to have her report printed. She later told me that although the editorial staff was in full favor of printing it, at the very last moment top management from NY Times vetoed publication. Why? Well, not many national publications want to alienate their company from large industry, nor do they want to discourage advertisers from "paying" for such damaging reports.
“They gave large amounts of money to some of the better known universities in America; they created newly formed departments of economics with that money; they hand picked their own people to be the professors to head up those departments and then those professors with all of their academic credentials gave speeches and wrote scholarly essays extolling the virtues of the Federal Reserve System. www.bigeye.com...
The ‘Innocents' Clubs’: www.heretical.com...
“...During the 1920's and most of the 1930's Münzenberg played a leading role in the Comintern, Lenin's front for world-wide co-ordination of the left under Russian control. Under Münzenberg's direction, hundreds of groups, committees and publications cynically used and manipulated the devout radicals of the West....Most of this army of workers in what Münzenberg called 'Innocents' Clubs' had no idea they were working for Stalin. They were led to believe that they were advancing the cause of a sort of socialist humanism. The descendents of the 'Innocents' Clubs' are still hard at work in our universities and colleges. Every year a new cohort of impressionable students join groups like the Anti-Nazi League believing them to be benign opponents of oppression...”
"Very few of even the larger international NGOs are operationally democratic, in the sense that members elect officers or direct policy on particular issues," notes Peter Spiro. "Arguably it is more often money than membership that determines influence, and money more often represents the support of centralized elites, such as major foundations, than of the grass roots." The CGG has benefited substantially from the largesse of the MacArthur, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations. www.afn.org...
Today, corporatism or neo-corporatism is used in reference to tendencies in politics for legislators and administrations to be influenced or dominated by the interests of business enterprises (limited liability corporations). The influence by other types of corporations, such as those representing organized labor, is relatively minor. In this view, government decisions are seen as being influenced strongly by which sorts of policies will lead to greater profits for favored companies. In this sense of the word, corporatism is also termed corporatocracy. If there is substantial military-corporate collaboration it is often called militarism or the military-industrial complex.
Corporatism is also used to describe a condition of corporate-dominated globalization...
Most political economists believe that such neo-corporatist arrangements are only possible in societies in which labor is highly organized and various labor unions are hierarchically organized in a single labor federation...
In recent times, the profusion of lobby groups and the increase in campaign contributions has led to widespread controversy and the McCain Feingold act. American corporatism is evidenced in the close ties between members of the Bush Administration and many large corporations, such as Halliburton.
John Ralston Saul argues that most Western societies are best described as corporatist states, run by a small elite of professional and interest groups, that exclude political participation from the citizenry.
“What unites the many different forms of Socialism.. is the conception that socialism (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) must be handed down to the grateful masses in one form or another, by a ruling elite which is not subject to their control...” search.marxists.org...
Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as "internationalists" and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it." - Pg. 405 of David Rockefeller's Autobiography, 2002
"This present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for too long - We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. David Rockefeller"

People have been wondering how the USDA is ever going to enforce such a complex Byzantine system of regulations .... Well now we know:
US planning to recruit one in 24 Americans as citizen spies
The Bush Administration aims to recruit millions of United States citizens as domestic informants in a program likely to alarm civil liberties groups. The program would use a minimum of 4 per cent of Americans to report “suspicious activity”. Civil liberties groups have already warned that, with the passage earlier this year of the Patriot Act, there is potential for abusive, large-scale investigations of US citizens. Highlighting the scope of the surveillance network, TIPS volunteers are being recruited primarily from among those whose work provides access to homes, businesses or transport systems. Letter carriers, utility employees, truck drivers and train conductors are among those named as targeted recruits.....
Note that on page 27 of the USDA proposed draft for NAIS it states:
Reporting Animal Movement/Sightings
Records that provide animal location and movements would be received from various sectors of the industry (producers, animal health officials, service providers, markets, and slaughter plants). Such input would be obtained through the integration of the AIN/Animal Transaction file....

Hitler also repeatedly said that he would do the things he did BEFORE he did them, and millions cheered him on.
....Also, stop getting your information from crappy sites such as NoNAIS...they also talk about "holistic goat care" on the same site.....

It's featured as a blog on that site!
Look, I get why they're against it, it results in more paper work and maybe a fee. However, something they completely fail to mention is that this is a great thing for consumers. It results in more oversight, it'll be easier to track diseases from farm animals, and will force producers to follow minimum standards. All this is GOOD for the consumer. So if this ever came to a vote, I'd vote YES in a heartbeat.

I agree, people sometimes forget the good things that were accomplished because the media looooooooves focusing on positive news.
And that shows a crucial issue: Since people stop doing their own research, they just listen to the "loudest" voice tell them their opinion...instead of coming up with their own opinion by doing their own research. Instead we have mindless zombies repeating campaign slogans like "Obama did...and Hitler did the same". All it shows is that the citizens are systematically being dumbed down...which makes them easier to control.
