Dominant Social Theme: What the US needs is more law and order.
Free-Market Analysis: We have been commenting on the growing wave of "law and order" in the United States. And this letter to the editor, excerpted above, is surely another sign of it. There is so much ruin in the country (and the West) now that the powers-that-be are likely growing increasingly worried about civilian unrest.
They are, in our view, actively encouraging such unrest (so as to be able to shape it) but also, at the same time, they are suppressing unrest and seek to create further law enforcement bodies and quasi-military groups to ensure that civil unrest does not spread unchecked. One such group – in the US, anyway – would be a national police force.
This is only part of a larger authoritarian drive, however. The Anglosphere power elite that apparently wants to run the world (formally) is using the current economic chaos to prepare fundamental, Draconian "reforms" to the way US business and investing works.
US President Barack Obama's persona and policies are surely tailored to this larger meme. Authoritarianism can be developed in numerous ways. We have, for instance, covered the new Pecora Hearings that we believe are being generated even now.
These hearings are not yet in evidence but we are sure they will be. In fact, secret efforts in Congress to set up such hearings have been reported by at least one alternative news website that then removed the article. But it seems obvious to us that these hearings are going to take place at some point.
