Authoritarian states permit the alteration of truth; “to rewrite history retrospectively; to distort the news, suppress the true, add the false. Propaganda is substituted for information. In fact, in such a country you are not a citizen possessor of rights but a subject, and as such you owe to the State fanatical loyalty and supine obedience.”
Bottom line, our law enforcement, district attorneys and judges have succumb to the propaganda machine of MADD politics. What happens then? It is already happening here in the loss of the basic rights of the innocent until proven guilty citizen accused. A poignant passage of the book:
“In every part of the world, wherever you begin by denying the fundamental liberties of mankind, and equality among people, you move towards the concentration camp system, and it is a road on which it is difficult to halt.”
Sheriff Joe in Phoenix Arizona is already humiliating DWI inmates by putting them into pink jumpsuits. In addition, states across the country are passing DWI laws where citizens with a past DWI conviction have to use license plates that brand them as such.
It is important that one separates their feelings when considering this loss of constitutional liberties. Our Constitution applies to all citizens accused of all crimes. To stop this DWI tyranny we must first recognize it and go back to reason. A concluding thought from the book on how it all begins:
“This collective madness, this ‘running off the rails’, is usually explained by postulating the combination of many diverse factors, insufficient if considered singly…”
It’s time to we go back to reason. We are in un-American DWI police state tyranny.
