"In a very real and terrifying sense, our Government is the CIA and the
Pentagon, with Congress reduced to a debating society. Of course, you can't
spot this trend to fascism by casually looking around. You can't look for
such familiar signs as the swastika, because they won't be there. We won't
build Dachaus and Auschwitzes; the clever manipulation of the mass media is
creating a concentration camp of the mind that promises to be far more
effective in keeping the populace in line. We're not going to wake up one
morning and suddenly find ourselves in gray uniforms goose-stepping off to
work. But this isn't the test. The test is: What happens to the individual
who dissents? In Nazi Germany, he was physically destroyed; here, the
process is more subtle, but the end results can be the same.

I've learned enough about the machinations of the CIA in the past year to
know that this is no longer the dreamworld America I once believed in. The
imperatives of the population explosion, which almost inevitably will lessen
our belief in the sanctity of the individual human life, combined with the
awesome power of the CIA and the defense establishment, seem destined to
seal the fate of the America I knew as a child and bring us into a new
Orwellian world where the citizen exists for the state and where raw power
justifies any and every immoral act. I've always had a kind of knee-jerk
trust in my Government's basic integrity, whatever political blunders it may
make. But I've come to realize that in Washington, deceiving and
manipulating the public are viewed by some as the natural prerogatives of
office. Huey Long once said, 'Fascism will come to America in the name of
anti-fascism.' I'm afraid, based on my own experience, that fascism will come
to America in the name of national security."

Which you just happened to be reading during a teabreak;) ;)

I must admit these 'quotes' etc are always of interest and only go to prove that history can and will repeat itself if people do not learn from it.

Mind you I think you should include the UK government when that sort of doom and gloom statement is issued.

According to this post, it could be concluded that there is no hope. :rolleyes: However, there are a couple of things you can do. I would recommend that Americans read "The Making of America" by Cleon Skousen. This helps to get your priorities straight. You will have a difficult time solving problems unless you have a description like a "sequence of operation" and a manual for the equipment or system you are trying to understand. This applies to all facets of life. Reading of the above book should be a test for you to determine if you really understand America and what is currently wrong and currently right with this nation, and why. You might want to check other books written by Cleon Skousen. Go to http://www.nccs.net/ and take a look. Yes it will cost you for his books. I have no connection with this and am not going to gain any monetary benefit by referring you. If you are a hands on technician, looking for real answers, you need the right tools to do the job. Let me know if you get one of these books and can't find the answers. If we believe in the principles of our nation, we need to know what to do to save it. Understanding our nation will put us in a position to help it and be the best for the world. Always open to responsible comments, :) Bill Thomas

It is a fine line that every nation faces. When they are faced with evil from outside forces. God help us all to make the right choices.

i believe America is a great country which can guard the freedom for individuals. Nation security is for the people,of the peoplw and by the people. it must be prevented that some politicians mislead the people.
