    This is when the overthrow by the People begins. No society is going to experience life, liberty and happiness with a totalitarian police state. What do we want, a false sense of security with a KGB disappearing people, or real security to defend ourselves and not be subjects of suspicion?

    What will happen, is basic necessities of life will become in short supply. Why? Because our population density, worldwide, REQUIRES high-technology agriculture and food distribution. This takes work - and inventiveness.

    Subjects of collectivist totalitarianism do not work hard. When those societies, Russia, India, Cuba, Venezuela, are taken over, food surpluses disappear; and privation, sometimes starvation, unfolds.

    The USSR was twice nearly starved out. First time was the 1930s - a rough time for Uncle Josef. The war saved him...HITLER saved him. Hitler's sneak attack drove him into the Allies; and the US was ready to ship trucks, tanks, jeeps...locomotives and rail cars...and FOOD, to them.

    Second time was the 1970s. A massive wheat crop failure, so we were told. I expect it was just lackadasical collectivist farming non-production, several years deep. Anyway, that esteemed Cold Warrior, the Communist FIghter...NIXON..."sold" (gave) the USSR a huge continuing shipment of wheat. American farmers were paid out of the IMF, which gets its money from the US taxpayer. Thanks Dickie...

    Just the same, they were looking at hard times again, when Gorby packed it in.

    What does this have to do with the topic? We go collectivist, WE get the SAME failures. And there ain't gonna be any nice Western nation, fascinated with Woketard Fascism, to bail us out. The whole of Europe will be starving with us; and as they do without energy and food, they cultivate emnity with Russia. That's real smart.

    So, what's going to happen with removal of Life and Liberty - Natural Rights of Man - is, the society becomes stagnant, and declining, and angry factions emerge. Civility breaks down. Collapse ensues; and out of that, I can guarantee you, we'll get some sort of Emperor or PresidentForLife.

    Oh, I think there might be a little doubt about that. It's my opinion, not saying there's no doubt, that the ills caused by new technology can also be solved by new technology. The problem is the government likes the problems.


    For example, why can't the government reduce the bogus income filings by comparing social security numbers and names? Answer: they don't want to because the people making false income tax filings to get undeserved money from the government are Democrats.


    Why didn't the government have the computer warn them when too many Social Security checks were being sent to one one-bedroom apartment? Answer: they don't care. The people doing this are Democrats.


    Why wouldn't the Post Office balk at sending over a hundred mail-in ballots to a one-bedroom apartment? Answer: they don't care because the people doing this are Democrats.


    The problem is that we are all criminals. We have allowed enough laws to be written that when the government decides they want someone they can find a violation of the law. It will probably be one you've never heard of.


    It has been in my lifetime that lying to the government became a crime. It has been in my lifetime that uttering a threat quit being free speech and became a crime. I was shocked to learn that driving to Wyoming from Colorado in a car when the bank held the title was a felony and putting my work address on my drivers license instead of my residence was a felony.


    Don't ever go to bed thinking you're not a criminal.
