Top 10 signs we live in a police state
Whether it’s Edward Snowden, or Bradley Manning, it’s not a good time to be a whistle-blower. It’s all too apparent that we live under the illusion of freedom. We were warned about this, years ago, and all we did was slowly fall in line. We say we are not sheep, and we can see the obvious when it is being blatantly shoved right in our faces, yet we have slowly fallen into an obvious police state in this country, and no one seems to do a damn thing about it. Every single move you make is monitored, and yet, you make the same moves. You offer no opposition for the slow take over (by big brother) of the world around you. And truth be told, that makes us as bad as them. If there are no sheep to be slaughtered, the Shepherd starve. Yet we, as sheep, walk coyly to the slaughterhouse, making it that much easier.
We need to stand up and oppose this forceful eye, to prove to them we KNOW we are in a police state, and will not tolerate this Nazification of the world, watching our every move to make sure we stay in line, and robbing us of all our privacy and the freedoms we have earned and deserve. We need to see the private agenda as a runaway train, coming at us, and we need to derail it before it engulfs us all in the wreckage. Here, for your reading pleasure, the top ten pieces of evidence proving we live in a police state and are doing nothing about it.
This is the one that scares us most, as silly as that may sound, because this is the one that will have the biggest impact on us (don’t forget, you are reading us on the web right now, this is sort of what we do for a living). SOPA is short for the Stop Online Piracy Act, and being someone who gets work stolen often, if that is really what SOPA was used for, maybe it WOULD be a good thing, but that is just the cover up for what it really is. A way to monitor the web and pretty much stop ANYONE from talking about ANYTHING that made the government quake in their shoes.
So basically, full and total control over the one and only place the government and big brother DON’T yet have control over: The web. Meaning all this info you are seeing right now would not only be gone, but we would be locked up for it. Awesome, huh, all that free speech and right to bare arms stuff from the constitution has proven to be total bullshit.
9. Cellphone GPS
This one bothers me the most, because it is the one on the list that shows us as the most complacent. Not only do we carry a GPS on us at all times, but most of us never actually go into the phone settings and shut it off. That is, literally, all it would take to make your world that much less open, therefore no longer enabling your constant and tracking and surveillance. Truth is, shutting it off will only do so much, as most of the real tech they use on phones is nano, but atleast it shows you are not so willing to get in line, which is one step in the right direction.
Also known as the National Defense Authorization Act (or the Indefinite Detention Bill) is a a United States Federal law stating the budget for the Department of Defense. The reality behind it is that it is a further extension of the idea’s behind our next culprit on the list (the Patriot Act). The idea is that anyone (meaning anyone at all) who is seen as a “threat” to this Country (or its 1950s ideals) can be detained, without reason, for as long as is deemed necessary but those in charge. The long and the short of it, it is another law that was passed limiting the freedoms of the American people, and it is another loss of freedom that we barely raised a whimper about.
The long and the short is: NDAA allows American citizens to be arrested, imprisoned, and tortured by the U.S. military–without due process of any kind!
7. The Patriot Act
Passed on month after the 9/11 (inside) attacks by George Bush Jr, and furthering the agenda of the New World Order like his Dad had years earlier, The Patriot Act was, and will always be, the death blow dealt to America by its own hand. There is no single thing on this list as damning as this one law, that pretty much says: F*ck all you, Americans. If you do not do as we say, and act as we tell you to, we will come into your house, beat and arrest you, and we don’t have to tell anyone why other than you were a “terrorist”, nor where you went, or give you any hint at ever getting your freedom back. Just by it being passed, that says so much about all the freedoms we have lost in this post 9/11 world, and how the private NWO agenda is winning. Why did no one stand in REAL opposition to this?
6. Big Brother
Though I touched on this in the cell phone GPS paragraph, no single human can deny that everything, everywhere, is now being filmed. From stores to stop lights and street corners. From parking lots to private cell phones. from dash cams to web cams, we have ALLOWED the integration of the maddening eye of big brother, and again, did NOTHING to stop it, but actually helped perpetuate it by allowing and encouraging it. Yes, we want camera in our phones and our game systems and our cars and our TVs and anything else you can jam a tiny camera in to monitor our every move and word.
5. The 99% (Occupy) Crackdowns
Listen, I was there in Boston when the tent cities got raided for no reason, and I saw first hand what was going on. First off, each “tent city” set up around the time of the 99% versus the 1% battle (that should have led to a Civil War in this country, but didn’t for reasons unknown to me) had “rebel rousers” planted in their midst. Meaning, people who LOOKED like they were part of the cause, but they were the ones who were filmed starting riots and provoking police officers when no one else was. They are planted by media and the government itself so that WE can look like the bad guys when all we are doing is fighting for our rights and refusing to be used as step ladders.
So what was it like on the inside? Everyone was living just fine, barting with each other, and NO ONE was fighting, swearing, or starting shit, and you would see the cops come in and just start pulling people out of tents for no reason, hitting them and macing them, while wrecking the small shanty town all these people had built over the last few months. I even saw them break generators so the people in the tent cities (who were using the generators for heat) would be pushed out and their movement would be rendered useless, which it ultimately was. It was Nazi Germany, all over again, and no one cared.
4. Gun Control
If there is one topic outside of the 99% that seems to be getting the most heat right now, it’s the future of gun control. If there has ever been a more clear cut case of human rights being thrown completely out the window (with our constitutional rights as well), I don’t know what it is. Obama’s crackdown on guns has the world at its boiling point right now. Citing some recent shootings as example (Sandy Hook, anyone?), which were clearly orchestrated by our own government as well, we are now in the middle of a debate so heated, this writer would not be surprised if this was the catalyst that finally caused the country to boil over into riots or even civil war. First you take our freedom, next you take our free will and ability to think for ourselves, and finally you take our weapons and last means of defending ourselves, slowly rendering us perfect sheep and docile humans who have no way to offer or show opposition as you crush us in your hands.
Why are we allowing this, people? Truth is, the best of us aren’t.
3. Tie) Operation Tips
Though everything up to this point on the list might be something you are universally familiar with, Operation Tips is the one people seem to know the least about, so allow us a moment to fill you in. Operation Tips is another post 9/11 device used to turn Americans against Americans. The idea behind it was “anyone can be a terrorist, so if someone you know or have seen is being suspicious report them to us.” Sort of how the communism scare worked in the fifties on to the cold war. It is like Invasion of the Body Snatchers, with us all peering out our windows at our neighbors, wondering what they were up to. It was also implied, through Operation Tips, that U.S workers who had private access to citizens homes (cable workers and so on) would be reporting back if what they saw they deemed as “suspicious”. Does anyone see how cataclysmic this could have all ended in the PTST state the world was in post 9/11? All you had to do was say a neighbor was suspicious, and next thing you know, as a result of the NDAA or Patriot Act, you would never see that person again.
Listen, if the government is against us, that makes sense, and we can stand together to fight that oppression. But if they stand back and let us fight each other, well, that just makes us into the animal, and that is clearly the privatized goal here. Thankfully, Operation Tips did rile some feathers, so it seems to have taken a back seat. Until the next “terrorist” act on American soil (perpetuated by our own Government) goes down at some point in the next few years.
3. Tie) Black Helicopters/Spy Drones
The reason these two are tied is because of the ambiguity of both. First, we are sworn up and down that black helicopters are just some urban legend (black, unmarked helicopters that have been seen and filmed often, yet “don’t exist”). What is their purpose? The general belief is that black copters will be used in the eventual military takeover of the U.S, but again, we are all crazy and these don’t exist. So by the governments standards, this picture is not real.
And the U.S spy drone thing has been an issue for some time now. While our own government swears up and down that spy drones are NOT used on U. S soil to spy on U.S citizens, how do they account for the footage and images of spy drones in the U.S, which many of us have seen with our own eyes? They call it a conspiracy theory when they refuse to answer and want to make us, those who ask the questions, look foolish. But the best of us know better, and won’t tolerate such lies.
So why not start the list with the most blatant example? Because we need to understand that we are assaulted, on all sides, at once. While all we do is being filmed and monitored, all we MONITOR is being nuanced and changed. From mass media to music videos, everything is made to be mass consumed, and to shut down our own brand of free thinking. Thoug the above examples are blatant, it is this example that is actually the most jarring, for the simple reason that we allow to encompass us. We start grazing in the field, just like they want is to, and before you know, we are willingly walking off to the slaughterhouse, blissfully unaware that we could have avoided this horrible fate had we just turned off the TV, stood up, and all at once yelled: ENOUGH.
Well guess what? It is not too late to do that now.
