Police State in Slo-Mo, by Jeff Thomas

The U.S. government’s slide into totalitarianism has been so slow as to be virtually undetectable. That’s not to say it hasn’t worked; the government is more tyrannical now than it has ever been before, stretching back to the the American Revolution. From Jeff Thomas at internationalman.com:

For many years, I’ve forecasted that the US will evolve into a police state; that it will begin slowly; then as more and more freedoms are removed, the creation of the police state will accelerate.

We’re now seeing that acceleration, as more and more Americans are detained, questioned, and having their property confiscated than ever before.

As an example, in 2016, some 20,000 travellers in and out of the US were stopped, often at random. Typically, their baggage was searched, their documents photocopied, access codes to their electronic devices demanded and their files copied. In most cases, no explanation was given, but they were advised that if the search was refused, they would be detained indefinitely.
