What we see is not random chaos, but organised ‘chaos’, organised ‘incompetence’, organised deprivation and suffering.

And who can be more delusional than the ‘coincidence theorists’ who say that it’s all a coincidence that the same Orwellian police state in all its multiple manifestations is being rolled out in virtually every country at the same time using the same excuses? Now that is denial and self-deceit of breathtaking proportions. The world is mad because it is made to be that way. There is method in the madness.

==The Perception Deception – Part One (David Icke)

From the beginning of his first term I had doubts. There were signs of something more consequential and pervasive—well beyond the missteps, overreaching, and palace intrigues one finds in all presidential administrations. The fanatical secrecy, the proclivity for police state tactics and contempt for democratic safeguards, the blatant determination to advance the interests of those who already had so much, the efforts to politicize government services from top to bottom—these were evidence of a mind-set rarely seen in American politics.

==Family of Secrets (Russ Baker)

I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency [the National Security Agency] and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return.

—Senator Frank Church (1975)

We are getting very close to the last grain of sand that causes the avalanche as the global economy and geopolitical system is now in a hyper-critical dynamic state–when, which grain falling is the ultimate catalyst for the coming systemic global socioeconomic collapse is almost mathematically impossible to predict with precision…but I give it to the end of this year at best. There is nothing that to be done to prevent the coming economic and geopolitical avalanche from happening, it is far, far to late for that. Somehow, being as prepared as possible is all that can be done, even if this is purely psychological. The shock alone will debilitate most before the real effects ever hit them. 

The oldest answered question in the social sciences is ‘Why do societies collapse?’. I advance a theory of the collapse of societies that is based on self-organized criticality, which is a nonlinear process that produces sudden shifts and fractal patterns in historical time series. More generally, I conjecture that weak, self-organized criticality is ubiquitous in human systems. If this conjecture is correct, it would not only explain the source of total societal collapses but the pattern of most other sorts of human calamities and even the frequency distribution of many mundane day-to-day events.

=Why Do Societies Collapse? A Theory Based on Self-Organized Criticality Gregory G. Brunk

“You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.”—George Orwell, 1984

None of us are perfect. All of us bend the rules occasionally. Even before the age of overcriminalization, when the most upstanding citizen could be counted on to break at least three laws a day without knowing it, most of us have knowingly flouted the law from time to time.

Indeed, there was a time when most Americans thought nothing of driving a few miles over the speed limit, pausing (rather than coming to a full stop) at a red light when making a right-hand turn if no one was around, jaywalking across the street, and letting their kid play hookie from school once in a while. Of course, that was before the era of speed cameras that ticket you for going even a mile over the posted limit, red light cameras that fine you for making safe “rolling stop” right-hand turns on red, surveillance cameras equipped with facial recognition software mounted on street corners, and school truancy laws that fine parents for “unexcused” absences.

My, how times have changed.
