Do you trust your government to act in your best interests? Or do you expect your government to act in their best interests? Either way, 9-11 changed the world. Our world. Especially how the government looks at each of us. We are still trying to come to grips with the massive changes in civil liberties and laws affecting our privacy.
National security is an excuse for anything. Have you ever wondered how it is that the government was all too prepared to act as it did in the aftermath? Paranoia? Conspiracy theories? Or just good, old-fashioned science fiction?
You decide! The truth is out there somewhere. Maybe…
“More stringent security measures. Universal electronic surveillance. No-knock laws. Stop and frisk laws. Government inspection of first-class mail. Automatic fingerprinting, photographing, blood tests, and urinalysis of any person arrested before he is charged with a crime. A law making it unlawful to resist even unlawful arrest. Laws establishing detention camps for potential subversives. Gun control laws. Restrictions on travel.
The assassinations, you see, establish the need for such laws in the public mind. Instead of realizing that there is a conspiracy, conducted by a handful of men, the people reason — or are manipulated into reasoning — that the entire population must have its freedom restricted in order to protect the leaders. The people agree that they themselves can’t be trusted.”
”The Illuminatus! Trilogy is a series of three novels written by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson first published in 1975. The trilogy is a satirical, postmodern, science fiction-influenced adventure story; a drug-, sex-, and magic-laden trek through a number of conspiracy theories, both historical and imaginary, related to the authors’ version of the Illuminati.” (Wikipedia)
