We’re All Enemies of the State: Draconian Laws, Precrime & the Surveillance State By John W. Whitehead “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”—H.L. Mencken We’ve been down this road many times before. If the government is consistent about any one thing, it is this: it has an unnerving tendency to exploit crises and use them as opportunities for power grabs under the guise of national security.…

Police in America Have Killed 12.8 Times More Citizens Than Mass Shooters In Just The Last 4 Years By Matt Agorist Tragically, in America, mass shootings — in which murdering psychopaths go on rampages in public spaces — have claimed the lives of 339 people since 2015.
