“Terrorism is adamant. Fight against requires endurance, specific Counter-terrorism, Intelligence and swift operation”
― Michael Harris PhD
And sometimes so is Totalitarianism.
I had a disturbing dream last night. I dreamed that all of us in the US were required to learn to read and speak Chinese (not a far fetched notion given that many nations have done the same in the past with English when we were the preeminent political and economic power – and China is replacing us). We also had to give half of what we harvested and earned to the government to support its voracious appetite.
Ya know, it only took four years (1930 -1934) for Germany to shift from being a republic to a totalitarian state. Starting with the rampant inflation of 1929-1930 and facilitated by the emergency declarations of the state, it all came about swiftly and caught most unaware.
See any similarities here?
