     While the 4th of July will be celebrated this week I will remember what those faithful patriots accomplished back in 1776 after the Declaration of Independence went into affect.  They fought for freedom and won.  By the 21 century American soldiers, Marines, the Navy and the Air Force continue to be used around the world in various military actions which has obviously not always been for the cause of freedom.  There have been other issues involved behind the scenes whether it be the lust of power, oil, gold or poppy fields.

Since 9/11 fighting terrorism has been used as an excuse to invade foreign countries in the Middle East.  Yet, there are many issues that now cloud this mission which has not only affected countries outside of our borders but at home as well. And by now, in 2019, the entire concept of freedom has taken a back seat to over taxation, global encounters whether it be war, climate change, environmentalism, sustainability, red tape, bureaucratic overreach or the outrageous and out of control legalism that now cuts into the very heart of freedom.

The Jackboots Are Coming: Mass Arrests, Power Grabs and the Politics of Fear | By John W. Whitehead

“Never has our future been more unpredictable, never have we depended so much on political forces that cannot be trusted to follow the rules of common sense and self-interest—forces that look like sheer insanity, if judged by the standards of other centuries.” ― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

How do you persuade a populace to embrace totalitarianism, that goose-stepping form of tyranny in which the government has all of the power and “we the people” have none?

You persuade the people that the menace they face (imaginary or not) is so sinister, so overwhelming, so fearsome that the only way to surmount the danger is by empowering the government to take all necessary steps to quash it, even if that means allowing government jackboots to trample all over the Constitution.

This is how you use the politics of fear to persuade a freedom-loving people to shackle themselves to a dictatorship.

It works the same way every time.

The government’s overblown, extended wars on terrorism, drugs, violence and illegal immigration have been convenient ruses used to terrorized the populace into relinquishing more of their freedoms in exchange for elusive promises of security.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. More
