A startling video by Naomi Wolf, author of "The End of America"
  (The word "democracy" is used incorrectly, as a synonym for liberty, but the message is still excellent.) It becomes clear that the "left versus right" political spectrum has become obsolete. The struggle is between freedom loving people versus tyranny of any sort.
  Naomi Wolf explains how boogey men adversaries provide the EXCUSE FOR TYRANNY.
In every call for more power for
government there should be a reminder that nothing in the
measure will abrogate the constitutional rights of American citizens.
We must not destroy freedom in the name of defending freedom.
    Be careful about elimination of rights,
  or the setting up of totalitarian instruments.
  Creating terrorism provides the EXCUSE FOR TYRANNY.
  Natural calamities provide the EXCUSE FOR TYRANNY.
  Illegal aliens provide the EXCUSE FOR TYRANNY.

  The sequence of steps that have been taken,
  in this country,
  is the most common pathway to dictatorship.
  "You would rather we let or guard down and suffer terrorist attacks on our
own soil?"
  "Can't the government cut a few corners to help?"

Government officials making searches without warrants, demanding identification without probable cause, to believe that a crime has been committed IS a terrorist attack on our own soil.

  For Hitler, the national emergency was the burning of the Reichstag Building. Then he set up the Gestapo.
  We have 9-11 and "Home Land Security". It even sounds like "Fatherland"
  Totalitarians gain power through techniques that have been developed over the entire history of mankind. Most of these techniques have been written down in "training manuals" for would be dictators.
  Examples are:
  "And Not a Shot is Fired" by Jan Kozak,
  "The Communist Manifesto" by Karl Marx,
  Communist Manifesto - $3.00
  and "The Prince" by Nicolo Machiavelli.
  These techniques have also been revealed by "defectors" such as Eric Blair, who wrote "1984", under the pen name of George Orwell.
  Nineteen Eighty Four (1984) by Orwell - $5.95
  The book called "Tragedy and Hope" was written by Dr. Carroll Quigley. Carroll Quigley claimed that he was not a "defector" but that he wrote ""Tragedy and Hope"" to PROMOTE what he called the "network". Dr. Quigley is an authority on the world's secret power structure because HE IS ONE OF THE INSIDERS. He boasts that he has been a part of this network for most of his life. He writes approvingly of their power, and influence. To assure his readers of his own qualifications for the writing of this book, Dr. Quigley states:
  "I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies. . . but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known."
  Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time
  Liberal university college professor Carroll Quigley praises the efforts of "an international Anglophile network" whose goal is to rule the world. He boasts of having been permitted �to examine its papers and secret records,� and confirms the existence of an over-arching conspiracy, and details the origin and eventual power of the CFR and allied groups.

  How to become a dictator
  The creation of "emergencies" is a part of the totalitarian agenda. The creation of "emergencies" gives the government an excuse to "crack down". Then the creation of tyranny becomes justifiable and inevitable.
  When "emergencies" erupt the population accepts totalitarian measures as "the
  only alternative to the chaos". The action is in the REACTION.
  This tactic is called "pressure from above and pressure from below".
  The Communist book, called "And Not a Shot is Fired" by Jan Kozak , explains this entire strategy. Jan Kozak, who was then a member of the Czechoslovak Communist Party Central Committee, explains how a free government was actually transformed into a totalitarian dictatorship - legally. "And Not a Shot Is Fired" originated as an internal Czechoslovak Communist Party strategy paper.
  "And Not a Shot is Fired" is a "'how-to' manual for takeover of a free and elected system of government, through legal means. Kozak's discussion is not theory about what "might" be possible to accomplish the seizure of power. It is a history of a technique that was actually proven, by its implementation.
  And Not a Shot Is Fired by Kozak -
  Jan Kozak explains
  Pressure from above is what Jan Kozak called "revolutionary parliamentarianism". "Revolutionary parliamentarianism" means working INSIDE of the system to change laws in such a way as to increase the power of government.
  Pressure from below consists of the creation of the "emergencies"; which are then used as the excuses to increase the power of government. Karl Marx referred to pressure from below as "the proletarian struggle". Pressure from below might involve violence, or it might simply be the creation of the appearance of popular support for the increase in the power of government.
  Our government leaves our border WIDE OPEN to illegal aliens,
  but then claims to "protect" us, by creating totalitarian measures against law abiding American citizens.
