People saying "YOU are not going to be locked up" are probably right. For now, at least, no one is going to get locked up. The government isn't
stupid, even if they are pretty well evil - they are going to pass this law, everyone is going to be up in arms about it, and then when nothing
happens for a while, everyone who was on the fence about it will say, "This is fine, if you're not doing anything wrong don't worry about it!" I
mean, seriously, that is exactly what happened with the Patriot Act. Everyone forgot it happened and few are still actively concerned about wire
tapping and non-probable-cause warrants. we think, "The Patriot Act is in the past, something ol Bushy did" - no, it's something that Congress did,
and a good many of the people who were in Congress under Bush are still there now, and the Patriot Act has continued to be extended and enforced.
So it's my hypothesis that nothing major is going to happen directly following this act. The smartest thing to do is to let people forget about it.
It's almost Christmas anyways, people are going to have holiday cheer and New Year's resolution and new cars and gadgets and other useless s**t, and
next year, people are going to continue living normal lives. Maybe a couple terrorists will be prevented, for a day or two the news will talk about
them, and say things like, "Current legislation really helped us catch these terrorists. Where are all the naysayers now?" Then we'll continue to
forget. The year will pass. It could be a year, it could be a couple years, it could be ten years before it's obvious that the wrong people are
getting arrested indefinitely.
So yeah. People can be calm about this. If you're the type of person to be calm about these things, you're not in danger anyway, not now or in the
future. If you are up in arms about this, however, you're the type of person who should be worried because you'll be the first of the wrong
terrorists to go.
Honestly, I'm more terrified of our current government and corporations than I was ever terrified of terrorists. Terrorism is the biggest scam of my
short lifetime. Car crashes kill more people than terrorists ever have or will - but we're not afraid of cars. Why should we be afraid of poor brown
turbaned guys who live in the desert, have no money, have no infrastructure, and get funded by governments that are funded by the US? I'd be more
afraid of the rich white elites of this country who control every aspect of our lives without us even realizing it and who continue to enable
terrorism around the world, as well as enabling obesity (so we can't run away), apathy (so we don't want to run away), and materialism (so even if
we could and wanted to run away, we wouldn't be able to because we are tied to our electricity and computerized life that is controlled by the
elites). the War on Terror is the biggest scam, and it surprises me that more people don't see through it and realize, "Wait a second, terrorists
aren't actually nearly as dangerous as I thought they were! the real danger is coming from within..."
