The military technology of the US Empire has found its way into internal "homeland security" which has had the net effect of reducing individual freedom and degrading rights against the constitution. Paradox and irony suggest that the cost of this technology (1.2B per year) justifies extension of empire while it concurrently becomes unaffordable. Empire accelerates economic collapse. In collapse all this technology destabilizes the US internationally by creating enemies therefore it causes the potential loss of of US domestic infrastructure and the sheltered life of Americans who readily become victims of war. We saw that dynamic in 9-11 attacks. In response we have the growing security state. Taken as a trend US becomes victims of war and then suffer under the weight of government run amok in a security state. The people of the US become the victims of technology of Empire which they funded.
