You are now witnessing the beginning of a great epoch in history, he proclaimed, standing in front of the burned-out building, surrounded by national media. This fire he said, his voice trembling with emotion, is the beginning. He use the occasion — a sign from God he called it — to declare an all-out war on terrorism and its ideological sponsors, a people, he said who traced their origins to the Middle East and found motivation for their evil deeds in their religion.
Two weeks later the first prison for terrorists was built-in Orangianberg, holding the first suspected allies of the infamous terrorist. In a national outburst of patriotism, the nation’s flag was everywhere, even printed in newspapers, suitable for display.
Within four weeks of the terrorist attack, in the name of combatting terrorism and fighting the philosophy he said had spawned it, the nation’s now popular leader had pushed through legislation that suspended constitutional guarantees of free speech, privacy and habeas corpus. Police could now intercept mail and wire tap phones; suspected terrorists could be imprisoned without specific charges and without access to their lawyers; and police could sneak into people’s homes without warrants if the cases involved terrorism.
To get his patriotic Decree on the Protection of People and State passed, over the objections of concerned legislators and civil libertarians, Hitler agreed to put a four-year sunset provision on it: if the national emergency provoked by the terrorist attack was over by then, the people’s freedoms and rights would be restored and the police agencies would be rerestrained.
Within the first month after that terrorist attack, at the suggestion of a political adviser, Hitler brought a formerly obscure word into common usage. Instead of referring to the nation by its name, he began to refer to it as the the Fatherland. As hope, the people’s hearts swelled with pride and the seeds of an us-versus- them mentality were sown. Our land was the homeland, citizens thought: all others were simply foreign lands.
Within year of the terrorist attack, Hitler’s advisers determined the nation’s local police and federal agencies lacked the clear communication and overall coordinated administration necessary to deal with the terrorist threat facing the nation, including those citizens who were of Middle Eastern ancestry and thus probably terrorist sympathisers. He proposed a single new national agency to protect the security of the Fatherland, consolidating the actions of dozens of previously independent police, border and investigative agencies under a single powerful leader.
Most Americans remember his Office of Fatherland Security (known as the Reichssicherheitshaumptamt and the Schutzstaffel) simply by is most famous agency’s initials: the SS.
Perhaps more important, Hitler invited his supporters in industry into the halls of government to help build his new detention camps, his new military and his new empire, which was to herald a thousand years of peace. Industry and government worked hand-in-glove in a new type of pseudo-democracy first proposed by Mussolini and sustained by war.
|recommend book⇒Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class — And What We Can Do about It|
|This book is simple and somewhat repetitive. It argues five main points. |
Hartmann argues that historically the wealthy elite have always worked to eliminate the middle class and hence stomp out democracy. They can then run things for their own ultimate financial benefit. We are going through a period now where the middle class is collapsing as a result of the corporatocracy and wealth of the tiny elite at the top is exploding. Since they control the media, they spread all manner of myths that make people vote against their own self interest in favour of those of the elites.
The book also discusses how the war business hijacks government to provide it with endless streams of money for perpetual unnecessary war.
|Greyed out stores probably do not have the item in stock. Try looking for it with a bookfinder.|
I find it uncanny the way Bush has been step by step doing the same things as Hitler used early in his career to assume more and more dictatorial power. I have to assume Bush is consciously repeating Hitler’s plan that worked brilliantly for him.
