How to Build a Homeland Security Campus in Seven Steps
By Michael Gould-Wartofsky
Free speech zones. Taser guns. Hidden cameras. Data mining. A new security curriculum. Private security contractors... Welcome to the new homeland security campus
From Harvard to UCLA, the ivory tower is fast becoming the latest watchtower in Fortress America. The terror warriors, having turned their attention to "violent radicalization and homegrown terrorism" -- as it was recently dubbed in a House of Representatives bill of the same name -- have set out to reconquer that traditional hotbed of radicalization, the university.
Building a homeland-security campus and bringing the university to heel is a seven-step mission:
1. Target dissidents: As the warfare state has triggered dissent, the campus has increasingly become a target gallery -- with student protesters in the crosshairs. The government's number one target? Peace and justice organizations.@ ALTERNET
Just when you thought it was safe to go to school, this happens. Looks mighty damn fascist to me, over the top, beyond just security. Scary bastards.
Humanity has come so far in time but has matured so little. Control, control, is the mantra, we must control. Why? To retain the fascist-corporate symbiance that drives the money machine, the profits must go on!
It's a shame really, so many great people have advanced technology to be able to better manage power production and use to reduce our impact on the environment, but the corporatistas will have none of that. So we go on, submitting to the corporatista control through fascist means in order to keep our luxuries, nice homes, big cars, big screen TV's, we sell our selves to the devil to keep the 'junk' flowing into our veins, fine example of humanity we are.
Well regardless, the Sun will rise tomorrow and another day will begin, whether we we are here or not. The experiment 'Planet Earth' is a unique one, a living breathing life sustaining planet seeded with a species of learning and reasoning humans to see if they could co-exist in harmony with their world.
There is still time.
