He also said America is a corporate state. There are 25 lobbyists per Congressperson in America. Ordinary citizens have trouble seeing their Congressperson because of the lobbyists.
America has become a place where citizens accept as normal:
I have said it before and I will say it again. The purpose behind this level of police training is specifically to skirt Posse Comitatus. The Feds can't use military so they train police to be military but still call them police. Pretty simple actually.
The best conspiracies are the ones no one notices, not even the people involved. Simply put; all you need is a large enough group of like minded individuals and the police state will chug right along without ever really talking about it.
I’ve listened to only about one fourth of the archive for the first hour, but I already have three pages of notes, which follow.
A post-Christian society is not merely a society in which agnosticism or atheism is the prevailing fundamental belief. It is a society rooted in the history, culture, and practices of Christianity but in which the religious beliefs of Christianity have been either rejected or, worse, forgotten.
But there are consequences to forgetting truths. One consequence is that while we instinctively want to preserve the morals and manners of the Christian tradition, we cannot quite explain or defend them intellectually. So we find ourselves seeking more contemporary (i.e., in practice, secular) reasons for preserving them or, when they decay completely, inventing regulations to mimic them. When courtesy is abandoned, we invent speech codes, which are blunter in their impact and repress legitimate disagreement along with insults.

The law now assumes that the social worker knows what is best for the child. And the social worker in turn believes that his decisions are inspired by a professional care for the child that is equal to, even superior to, parental love.
Continuing, I heard Whitehead tell the story of something he did as a teenager to illustrate how things have changed. He said on Halloween he was throwing eggs at a car coming down a hill and was caught in the act by a policeman, who took him home to face the consequences from his dad. He said that today, 6 year olds in public schools are getting arrested for food fights and taken to jail: Food fights are now a crime in America.
He said the police having military titles and wearing black instead of blue, brown, or grey has a psychological effect on the police.
But I guess what is happening is that in some areas of the country the police are actually changing over to black uniforms.
He said the local police often now have SWAT teams.
He said that all the Federal agencies in the U.S. government now have SWAT teams.
