"In 1789, France entered a period of revolutionary change which was to see the complete restructuring of the state, the collapse of the monarchy, and its replacement by a republic. By 1793, France was riven by civil war and factional struggles and had also opened hostilities upon several neighbouring states. At home, political dissent and economic collapse were repressed by the use of political terror. For many contemporaries, as for later historians, the connection between these events and the Enlightenment was highly problematic. How could an era which had seen so much struggle for the rational reform of society, government and the individual have ended with such turmoil and violence?" - Dorinda Outram. The Enlightenment. 1995. Cambridge University Press. Pg. 126.An analysis of the passage of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) must start from the premise that since September 11, 2001, the hijacked U.S. government has been at war with America.
"All we have to do is remember who we are. We are not Germans. We're not peasants in China. We're not peasants in Russia. We have a legacy and a history of fighting for liberty. Americans have always fought for liberty. And we will fight again. So we will not be the Fourth Reich. We will not let that happen. Not without a fight." - Stewart Rhodes, founder of Oath Keepers, speaking on the Alex Jones show on January 12, 2012.
"I spent many years in countries where the military had the power to arrest and detain citizens without charge. I have been in some of these jails. I have friends and colleagues who have “disappeared” into military gulags. I know the consequences of granting sweeping and unrestricted policing power to the armed forces of any nation. And while my battle may be quixotic, it is one that has to be fought if we are to have any hope of pulling this country back from corporate fascism." - Chris Hedges, "Why I’m Suing Barack Obama," Truthdig, January 16, 2012.
As they say, it's nothing personal, it's just business.
The American people are a big liability for the political and corporate elite who are openly hostile towards the U.S. constitution and Bill of Rights. America is dead to them because the reality is that America and all nation states no longer matter.
Western elites favour technocratic regional unions, a world fascist economy, and authoritarian policing. Towards the fulfillment of their "new world order," they have destroyed democracy, social welfare programs, free market competition, and civil liberties.
The treasonous hijackers in Washington gained their war footing against the American people in the 1980s and 1990s, two decades which saw the privatization of the prison system, the militarization of the police, the betrayal of the American middle class, and the consolidation of the American media.
The ideological build-up of "domestic terrorism" and "international terrorism," was also necessary to the process of the centralization of power and destruction of the U.S. constitution by Washington's secret rulers. The false flag terror attacks in Oklahoma City and New York City were instrumental in pushing this process over legal obstacles as well as public, congressional, and bureaucratic resistance.
It can be argued that Oklahoma and New York - two cities which are poles apart from each other - were chosen by the state terrorists to emphasize that Middle America and the heart of the empire both share a deep sense of vulnerability and insecurity. It was psychological warfare at its finest. The enemy of "terrorism," which is a total invention, was solidified as a real threat in the minds of the American people through recurrent acts of state terrorism.
The political and moral bankruptcy of Washington's counter-terrorism policies are further unmasked when it is revealed, as the NDAA plainly does, that American citizens are the targets of counter-terrorism laws and the counter-terrorism bureaucracy.
Michel Chossudovsky, a professor of economics at the University of Ottawa, wrote about the anti-dissent nature of Washington's counter-terrorism agenda in his article on January 1, 2012 called, THE INAUGURATION OF POLICE STATE USA 2012. Obama Signs the "National Defense Authorization Act":
"Obama justifies the signing of the NDAA as a means to combating terrorism, as part of a "counter-terrorism" agenda. But in substance, any American opposed to the policies of the US government can --under the provisions of the NDAA-- be labelled a "suspected terrorist" and arrested under military detention. Already in 2004, Homeland Security defined several categories of potential "conspirators" or "suspected terrorists" including "foreign [Islamic] terrorists", "domestic radical groups", [antiwar and civil rights groups], "disgruntled employees" [labor and union activists] and "state sponsored adversaries" ["rogue states", "unstable nations"]. The unspoken objective in an era of war and social crisis is to repress all forms of domestic protest and dissent.The ramifications of the NDAA won't be known until the global economy collapses and political dissent in America reaches a crisis point. American citizens will indeed be put away in secret prisons by the thieves and traitors in Washington. So far, they have not been held accountable for their crimes against America, crimes against the Constitution, and crimes against humanity.
The “National Defense Authorization Act " (H.R. 1540) repeals the US Constitution. While the facade of democracy prevails, supported by media propaganda, the American republic is fractured. The tendency is towards the establishment of a totalitarian State, a military government dressed in civilian clothes.
The passage of NDAA is intimately related to Washington's global military agenda. The military pursuit of Worldwide hegemony also requires the "Militarization of the Homeland", namely the demise of the American Republic."
Americans, Canadians, and everybody else should psychologically prepare for future false flag attacks which will be blamed on political opposition groups and pro-democracy activists in the West. Western elites are fearful that a global public consensus will emerge around basic issues of freedom and safety, and that the world's people will challenge the international counter-terrorism strategy, the destruction of the rule of law, and the emerging global fascist state.
As stated by the creators of the Psywar documentary, the battlefield is your mind and soul. It is there that freedom, truth, peace, and justice will be won. It is there that mankind will take one final stand against political evil and economic fraud. It is there that fear and terror will be conquered.
