The truth of the photos and video links, included in this writing, documenting Police crimes and unprovoked atrocities sanctioned by “civilized” governments on unarmed citizenry needs to be shown. The photos and videos are graphic in nature and disturbing but they are intended to prompt a sobering realization of the depths to which humankind can descend… The images represent a warning. “Dead men will have indeed died in vain if live men refuse to look at them.” LIFE magazine, May 7, 1945. Next time, if not on guard, other groups of people could be targeted for complete annihilation. As the late Simon Wiesenthal so eloquently put it, “It is not a written law that the next victims must be Jews.”
“Show these pictures to all men who still can think! WAR: This most diabolical, meanest and lowest of all crimes of the State …. It is true that capital is the cause of every war. But the guilt of war rests on our shoulders. It is we proletarians that make the conduct of war possible; it is for us likewise to prevent wars!” Ernst Friedrich 1924 (WAR AGAINST WAR).
On the surface, the term, “LAW ENFORCEMENT” denotes an Agency controlled and empowered by the Government to ENFORCE Law and, by so doing, maintain Public Order. Here, in its plain written form, the end objective and method of achieving the objective is deceptively sequenced out of order. In reality, however, the converse is more true: Maintain Public Order by Enforcing the Law.
Once the formality of kindling Public awareness (not necessarily gaining Public concurrence or support) is accomplished through appropriately packaged propaganda and media hype, the Enforcement muscle of the State is flexed to defuse dissent (i.e. exercise control andmaintain Public Order) and promote compliance with a predesignated PERT/ route that conforms with State/Foreign policy (i.e., enforce the Law).
The noted British historian Lord Acton (1834-1902) framed the famous dictum, “…Where you have a concentration of power in a few hands, all too frequently men with the mentality of gangsters get control. History has proven that. … Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
And History has also shown repeatedly that corrupt people do seek absolute power to enslave fellow man.
So how do corrupt, unscrupulous leaders generate popular support (or, at least, indifference, noninterference) with their policies, particularly those policies that are generally considered barbaric, downright evil, and shock the conscience; for instance, enable mass slaughter of a targeted race of defenseless citizens, yet maintain an air of respectability?
“To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good… Ideology – that is what gives evildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors.” – Nobel Lareuate Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
To promote an insidious agenda, tyrants seek first to dehumanize the “minority” target population and influence the gullible “majority” to perceive them as “Evil-Parasitic-Inimical– Foreboding-A Threat-Criminal”. Pseudo-patriotic propaganda that instills fear, or insecurities or fuels prejudice amongst the citizenry, has been known to influence and promote justification for Leaders to seize carte blanc powers and deal with this new (created) “menace”. It becomes easier to victimize the target population with public support or, alternatively, it becomes possible to victimize absent public support but with public knowledge and concession to an unpopular state of affairs: A real-time enactment of the Predator–Prey equation disguised as a National Security imperative.
It is shamefully obvious that these progressively cruel and degrading practices were neither necessary for public order, nor in conformity with the legitimate rights of the human person. The sole purpose evident here is the State’s decision to cull a targeted community consistent with National Policy dictates.
Whether the State is entitled to supreme authority to set aside or negate the “inalienable” rights of the individual (for whatever “justification”) is really a mute point open to fruitless philosophical discussion of interest to reclusive academicians – maybe! The fact remains, and history makes this very evident through man’s consistent record of ethnic “cleansing” thru’ genocide, or privilege of the victor over the vanquished, etc., the State most certainly does exercise veto power over Divine Law and universally recognized standard of humaneness and interpersonal conduct!
This is not an instant accomplishment. The soil has to be tilled before the seed can be sown! If one remembers the chronological events in Nazi Germany, the first step was to disarm the Jewish citizens (Firearms registration, regulation, confiscation – cf. Düsseldorf Manifesto), then ostracize and socially segregate through appropriate “legislation”. Then follows relocation of these unarmed “parasitic undesirables” including millions of aged, women, children, and the handicapped to concentration camps where they would be put to “good use” by the State: e.g. stripped of all possessions and dignity, forced into inhumane labor, tortured as subjects of demented medical experiments, murdered en mass, cremated en mass, stripped of any gold in their dentures, their skin made into wallets, handbags, belts and such; bones and ashes that fertilized fields in the Fatherland! Most tyrants have been known to follow this template. Do a Google Search for “Holocaust”, or “Third Reich”, or “Nazi Atrocities”and see for yourself – PLEASE!
The curious thing about genocide of such gross proportions is the inappropriate placement of culpability. We paint the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Mao and other Ivy League tyrants as monsters. But from a criminal law standpoint, there’s no record of their personal participation in heinous crimes, but vicariously; and that’s stretching it! There’s no evidence of Hitler firing a single fatal shot to signal commencement of Open Hunting Season for Jews. Nor did he turn on a single faucet releasing cyanide gas on hapless captives. He didn’t conduct live dissections or other heinous medical experiments on live, un-anaesthetized prisoners. No, Sir! It was people like you and I – and we did it with remarkable gusto!
Along with persuasive propaganda and the time-honored advise onHow To Take Over a Country, there are at the very present a host of other more sinister devices secretly molding public thought and opinion. Without delving too much into the validity of some “conspiracy theories”, the general public is beginning to see only the “tip of the iceberg” that conceals a major inventory of Hyper-Tech mind altering enforcement tools developed for domestic “crowd control”, suppressing riots, and to maintain Public Order in the very near future. Such futuristic technology that intrudes on the sovereignty of one’s mind, or genetics, or beliefs, etc., have always given rise to public outcry. Yet such technology and research has continued unabated in secret.
During a quiet moment, have you ever wondered why we rarely respond to heinous acts perpetrated by our leaders? And when (IF) we do,how come it is typically half-hearted and fleeting? What made us so damn “tolerant” toward the victimization of others? And what makes us so damn certain it won’t happen to us next? Soon, people shall realize that the term “Public Order” is an euphemism for “Resigned Servitude”. There are creative means at work to accomplish this.
One sees red flags all over the horizon when such technology has been approved for use and its purpose is clearly yet another implement to suppress dissent. But when the underlying purpose and resulting consequences of other State run experiments are unknown or mostly conjecture, it is prudent to view them (and the motives)suspiciously.Case in Point: the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful, $5.8 billionatom-smasher ever built. We are told that scientists expect some bizarre discoveries, such as invisible matter or extra dimensions in space when it’s switched on in August. But some critics fear the LHC could exceed physicists’ wildest expectations, like spawn a Black Hole that could realistically swallow Earth. [But I have been assured by reliable extraterrestrial sources that it most likely will create a much sought after Inter-galactic Doorway (Stargate) for celestial visitors carrying Duty Free gifts for the downtrodden Earthlings!]. Here’s the latest: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080910/ap_on_re_eu/big_bang.
Looking at these pictures, one wonders if these atrocities could TRULY be the doing of human beings? “Civilized” human beings, at that? If so, we need to reevaluate our inventory of qualities that give credence to our claim that we’re human and civilized.
This macabre drama has been played out kazillion times in the past; avarice is still manifesting disguised as religion, politics, or some purportedly noble undertaking, as though such flimsy excuses bestow a tunic of respectability and validate gross criminal acts. Just as stealing is unacceptable by universal standards and one’s own conscience (no matter how convincing the reason sounds), so is stealing other’s very right to exist.
These pictures represent a frightening peek into oneself that awakens a sober realization of the corruption and degeneracy lurking hidden in us all: a part of us that should never be allowed to surface. But then again, “Life is but a stage and we must flay apart all their parts”! (Sorry, Elvis!). Unless, of course, you happen NOT to be the “flay-ER”, but the “flay-EE”!
More government and law enforcement resources are being re-allocated to fight dissenting opinion from the “enemy within.” And a new class of weapons is being developed to fight “bloodless” battles, fry computer circuitry and control human minds en masse. “Less Than Lethal anti-personnel weapons” are seen in some influential quarters as being the ideal remedy for future domestic revolutionary disturbances. It may be necessary for western democracy to avert severe set-backs and become increasingly repressive and oligarchic. Armed with innovative technological weapons that do not necessarily kill, but which render disenfranchised segments of society physically inactive, emotionally stupefied and incapable of meaningful thought is a goal of those who favor a “psycho-civilized society.” This is a frightening and all too realistic scenario. Whether by design or by default, such an outcome is nothing short of a dictatorship. [Synopsis from David G. Guyatt’s Some Aspects of Anti-Personnel Electromagnetic Weapons].

I CAN’T THINK OF A WITTY PUNCH LINE TO THE WRITING ABOVE. Perhaps because I fail to see any humor to it. So I think I’ll drown my depression in sleep; perhaps tomorrow will usher in a better era.
Good Night and God Bless …
