For many years, the state has been attempting to disarm the citizenry. While not understood by the mainstream, the success of these efforts has far exceeded the imagination of most. Those who own guns, and live in remote areas, don’t fully grasp the problem, as they are somewhat insulated from the norm. But many, especially those who live in the cities and more populated areas, know that they are heavily restricted, and for the most part accept this condition of helplessness voluntarily.
Places like Washington D.C. and New York City, where gun control is not only evident, but all encompassing, are now places filled with defenseless citizens. Many of these higher population centers are hotbeds of police abuse; abuse including no-knock raids, warrantless searches, protest restrictions, beatings, high incarceration for victimless crimes, and even murder of citizens. This situation is not improving, it is actually getting much worse, and now is spreading to other areas of the country that are not necessarily high population areas.
With the accelerated growth of the Department of Homeland Security, a most loathsome and dangerous government agency, the militarization and arming of the domestic police forces continues in earnest. All the government agents of force, including local, county, state, and federal, are combining strengths, and consolidating into a single unit. This is an ominous display of fusion by almost every department of force in America, and it is a picture of an out of control nation state living in fear of what it surely knows is coming.
My belief is that what is coming is an economic collapse; a collapse that will bring bank closures and bankruptcies, bank holidays, suspension of "entitlement" payments, global market selloffs, and general chaos. Should any of these things happen, the almost immediate result would be civil unrest, not just a few protesters chanting in the street, but large numbers of American citizens consumed with panic and rage.
