Beyond the Police-State

    Everything I see on Lew Rockwell's site recently reinforces a notion I have been developing.  The United States is a police state already and we are moving beyond it to even greater levels of oppression.  This new form I like to call a prison state.  The prison state is a state where all the citizens' (inmates') activities are carefully controlled, like in prison.  A central authority makes all the decisions and regimented life gradually is eroded until one fears freedom and actually wants to be controlled, like ex-cons who commit crimes just to be returned to jail.

    It's only a matter of time before the State uses the "environmental crisis" as an excuse to rigidly control all economic activity.

First they have to ban all private owned guns, because if not, the people will finally wake up, and things are going to start messy, unfortunately.
