America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Totalitarian Society
January 8, 2013
If someone were to ask you for an example of a “totalitarian
society”, how would you respond? Most Americans would probably think of horribly repressive regimes such as the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany,
Communist China, East Germany or North Korea, but the truth is that
there is one society that has far more rules and regulations than any of those societies ever dreamed of having. In the United States today,
our lives are governed by literally millions of laws, rules and
regulations that govern even the smallest details of our lives, and more laws, rules and regulations are constantly being added. On January
1st, thousands of restrictive new laws went into effect all over
America, but most Americans have become so accustomed to the matrix of
control that has been constructed all around them that it does not even
bother them when even more rules and regulations are put into place. In fact, a growing number of Americans have become totally convinced that
“freedom” and “liberty” must be tightly restricted for the good of
society and that “the free market” is inherently dangerous. On the
national, state and local levels, Americans continue to elect elitist
control freaks that are very eager to tell all the rest of us how to run virtually every aspect of our lives. According to Merriam-Webster, the following is one of the ways that the word “totalitarian” is
defined: “of or relating to a political regime based on subordination of the individual to the state and strict control of all aspects of the
life and productive capacity of the nation especially by coercive
measures”. And that is exactly what we are witnessing in America today – nearly all aspects of our lives and of the economy are very tightly
controlled by a bunch of control freaks that just keep tightening that
control with each passing year. We still like to call ourselves “the
land of the free”, but the truth is that we are being transformed into a totalitarian society unlike anything the world has ever seen before.
Where will we end up eventually if we keep going down this road?
If you still believe that America is “free”, just consider some of the things that are illegal in America today…
-Starting on January 1st, it is now illegal to make or import 75 watt incandescent light bulbs anywhere in the United States.
-In Oregon, it is illegal to collect rainwater that falls on your own property.
-In New Jersey, it is illegal to have an “unrestrained” cat or dog in your vehicle while you are driving.
-If you milk your cow and sell some of the milk to your neighbor, you could end up having your home raided by federal agents.
-In Miami Beach, Florida you must recycle your trash properly or face huge fines.
-All over the United States, cops are shutting down lemonade stands run by children because they don’t have the proper “permits”.
-Down in Tulsa, Oklahoma one unemployed woman had her survival garden brutally ripped out and
carted away by government thugs because it did not conform to
-Over in Massachusetts, all children in daycare centers are mandated by state law to brush their teeth after lunch. In fact, the state even provides the fluoride toothpaste for the children.
-At one public school down in Texas, a 12-year-old girl named Sarah Bustamantes was arrested for spraying herself with perfume.
-A 13-year-old student at a school in Albuquerque, New Mexico was arrested by police for burping in class.
-All over the United States cities have passed laws that actually make it illegal tofeed the homeless.
With each passing year, the number of decisions that we are allowed to make for ourselves gets smaller and smaller.
This includes some really fundamental things such as basic health decisions.
For example, the CDC will soon be recommending that nearly every
single American be vaccinated for the flu every single year. The
following is from a recent Natural News article…
An advisory panel to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) has recommended that every person be vaccinated for the seasonal flu yearly, except in a few cases where the vaccine is known
to be unsafe.
“Now no one should say ‘Should I or shouldn’t I?’” said CDC flu specialist Anthony Fiore.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted 11-0 with one
abstention to recommend yearly flu vaccination for everyone except for
children under the age of six months, whose immune systems have not yet
developed enough for vaccination to be safe, and people with egg
allergies or other health conditions that are known to make flu vaccines hazardous.
These “recommendations” are often made into mandatory requirements by school districts and employers all over the country. Will employers
all over the nation soon require all of their employees to take these
vaccines each year based on these CDC “recommendations”? This is
already happening in the healthcare field. Hundreds of healthcare
professionals all over the nation are being firedfor refusing to take certain vaccines. It doesn’t matter that there is atremendous amount of evidence that many of these vaccines are dangerous. Many health professionals
today are being faced with the choice of either submitting to the
“recommendations” of the “experts” or losing their jobs.
We see this kind of “creeping totalitarianism” in the business world as well. As I have written about previously, small businesses all over the country are being absolutely suffocated by mountains of laws, rules and regulations.
One of the biggest changes that small businesses will be dealing with in the next couple of years is Obamacare. Many small businesses have been cutting back hours in an attempt to get around the new requirements contained in Obamacare. The following is
one example from a news story that was published earlier this week…
Around 100 local Wendy’s workers have learned their hours are being cut. A spokesperson says a new health care law is to blame.
“Thirty-six to 37 hours a week.” That’s how many hours T.J. Growbeck
works at the 84th and Giles Wendy’s restaurant. The money he earns helps him pay for the basics, but that’s not the case for all his co-workers. “There are some people doing it trying to get by.”
The company has announced that all non-management positions will have their hours reduced to 28 a week. Gary Burdette, Vice President of
Operations for the local franchise, says the cuts are coming because the new Affordable Health Care Act requires employers to offer health
insurance to employees working 32-38 hours a week. Under the current law they are not considered full time and that as a small business owner,
he can’t afford to stay in operation and pay for everyone’s health
But the IRS has announced that it is going to make it very hard for
employers to avoid these new Obamacare regulations. According to new
IRS rules, all firms that “have at least 50 full-time employees or an equivalent combination of full-time and part-time employees” will be required to provide
healthcare for their employees and their dependents. The following is
from a recent New York Times article…
Under the rules, employers must offer coverage to employees in 2014
and must offer coverage to dependents as well, starting in 2015.
The new rules apply to employers that have at least 50 full-time
employees or an equivalent combination of full-time and part-time
employees. A full-time employee is a person employed on average at least 30 hours a week. And 100 half-time employees are considered equivalent
to 50 full-time employees.
Thus, the government said, an employer will be subject to the new
requirement if it has 40 full-time employees working 30 hours a week and 20 half-time employees working 15 hours a week.
So conceivably an employer could have only part-time employees and
still be required to provide healthcare coverage under Obamacare.
Of course many small businesses will not be able to afford to do
this, so expect to see a significant number of them shut down or to try
to survive with skeleton crews in 2014 and 2015.
As the number of laws, rules and regulations that govern our lives
continues to multiply, the control freaks that run things will continue
to try to use technology to watch us all and make sure that we are
obeying their rules.
One way that they are doing this is with automated traffic cameras.
Of course much of the time the performance of these cameras is terribly
flawed. Just consider the following example which recently appeared in
the Baltimore Sun…
The Baltimore City speed camera ticket alleged that the four-door
Mazda wagon was going 38 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone — and that
owner Daniel Doty owed $40 for the infraction.
But the Mazda wasn’t speeding.
It wasn’t even moving.
The two photos printed on the citation as evidence of speeding show
the car was idling at a red light with its brake lights illuminated. A
three-second video clip also offered as evidence shows the car
motionless, as traffic flows by on a cross street.
But even though technology sometimes fails, the control freaks that
run things seem absolutely obsessed with using it to monitor us. After
all, there are so many of us and watching all of us is a very big job.
For example, did you know that listening devices are being installed
on public buses all over the United States? The following is from a recent Wired article…
Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly
installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that
would give them the ability to record and store private conversations,
according to documents obtained by a news outlet.
The systems are being installed in San Francisco, Baltimore, and
other cities with funding from the Department of Homeland Security in
some cases, according to the Daily, which obtained copies of contracts, procurement requests, specs and other documents.
According to the article, some of these systems are incredibly
advanced and pair the audio that is being recorded with video that is
being taken at the same time…
In Eugene, Oregon, the Daily found, transit officials requested
microphones that would be capable of “distilling clear conversations
from the background noise of other voices, wind, traffic, windshields
wipers and engines” and also wanted at least five audio channels spread
across each bus that would be “paired with one or more camera images and recorded synchronously with the video for simultaneous playback.”
But that is just one example of how the surveillance of the American
people is rapidly growing. For many more examples, please see my
previous article entitled “29 Signs That The Elite Are Transforming Society Into A Total Domination Control Grid“.
If America continues down the path that it is on right now, the
United States will eventually be transformed into a “Big Brother
society” that is far more restrictive than anything George Orwell ever
We need a fundamental cultural revolution in this nation. We need a
revival of the principals of liberty and freedom that were so important
during the founding days of this country. We need to teach people that
even though liberty and freedom may be unpredictable at times, such an
environment is greatly preferable to a society where all of our
decisions are made for us by a tiny elite.
Please share this article with as many people as you can. Time is
running out, and we need to wake up as many as we can while there is
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.
It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.
Great nations rise and fall.
The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.”
