Fascism in the name of “Freedom & Democracy”
The World’s Greatest Threat!
“American militarism & the national security state that has evolved since 9/11 & the government’s methods of instilling propagandized fear in the American people are all means used to justify the policies & expansion of that national security state. It’s Fascism wrapped in the mantle of freedom & democracy making it the most insidious form of authoritarian despotism.”
“Most Americans seem in a state of denial or so into mindless distraction they are incapable and/or choose to remain in the dark of what America has become. (There appears a) callous indifference by those who should know better seemingly insulated from the horror of the government’s policies… abroad and increasingly domestically.
“The occupy movement momentarily flushed out from the shadows the greed and most egregious workings of the corporatist oligarchy that has created the plutocracy that underwrites the national security state. Legal dissent and whistle blowing leaks are attacked with vigor as the government resorts to lock-down secrecy and all justified and legalized by Justice Department memos kept secret for reasons of national security.
“In the bad ole USSR the people knew the state was the enemy. Not so in America where flag waving triumphalism is the “kool aid” propaganda drunk by the masses who are encouraged to engage in mindless distractions (like Superbowl Sunday)…
“Except for those few… who challenge the national security apparatus… the government would do all its mendacity in complete secrecy. The Congress is more like the “Duma” in the old Soviet Union. Oversight is an anachronism. Better to be engaged in “fiscal cliff” nonsense and unnecessary austerity measure arguments that keep the pot “boiling” but further distract the people from engaging in the real issues i.e. the malfeasance of the government’s illegal wars, the nonsensical war on terror, the dictatorial powers of the unitary executive, the NDAA, warrantless wiretapping, extraordinary rendition, indefinite detention, torture, the targeted assassination of American citizens, etc…
“(The Unites States of America) is the greatest threat in the world and most people outside America know it. But that seems incomprehensible or denied by most Americans, except Native Americans (and Kanaka Maoli) who know all too well the government sponsored genocide inflicted on them.”
