Do We Have Democracy or Fearocracy?

What on earth is going on?

The Shock Doctrine
Naomi Klein's - The Shock Doctrine

(LAKE CITY, Fla) - A Social or Government tactic to not only used to scare the enemy, but to implant fear into the very citizenry of the country... to manipulate with consent due to shock. This is far from a new concept. I provide a link below which explains it and how it has been used throughout history time and again.

This is an extremely good interview in a number of ways, but what I am seeing is that it is even more interesting as what she says then, in 2007, rings so true today, and borders on 'futuristic insight' of what we are seeing happening today in the US. Personally, I and others have watched this unfolding in the "Conspiracy Community" (so named as to render non-credibility) and it is easier to understand. This interview was in 2007--- note how she does not use the term fascism. I wonder what she would say today?

She states they could not have had that interview, she could not have written that book, and "people would be breaking down the door" if it were true fascism. She also goes into why they show the citizens pictures of the Twin Towers over and over again through the years and even the torture techniques used to subliminally implant it in our minds how ruthless they can indeed be.

Fear Doctrine = Problem-Reaction-Solution- http://bit.ly/nJUkqu. The populace still hear the word "Terror" practically on a daily basis in the "news" (I watch no mainstream news any longer by choice other than to critique)

Since that time, we have TSA groping-- Police Brutality running rampant including murder of homeless people; all the way to American War Veterans by the very police that used to Serve and Protect. Pepper spraying/rubber bullet/baton swinging/tear gas using 'police forces'.

The NDAA which shredded all rights we had left after W's Patriot Act move. Drones now being used in the US for and ON the citizens, along with internet censorship laws in Congress, A large # of highly respected and truthful journalists and 'whistleblowers' over the last decade + being either neutered (afraid to actually be journalists) or 'committing suicide' w/2 bullets or clubbed in the back of the head, and the occasional Private Airplane crash.

FEMA camps all over the country, the DHS (dept of homeland security) advertising for security workers online at their website for the FEMA camps, forced fluoridation of drinking water (numerous states NJ being the most recent- where water districts are privately owned!), the Foreclosure Fraud and a catastrophic Financial Crisis with absolutely No Accountability.

The Deal the President made with the Bankers gave homeowners who lost their homes due to fraud a paltry $2K, and the banks operate without regulatory rules imposed- allowing them to do the same again, business as usual, and a fine akin to a slap on the hand. None of which is really dealt with by the MSM either in Print or Via Television Presstitution. Where is the outrage I keep thinking?!

Higher Taxation and Lowered Wages and the attempt to abolish Unions, along with Collective Bargaining being talked about as if it were an unreasonable idea in the first place.

As a small example of how they are using even small legislation like building codes to disrupt anything that goes against the agenda: NYPD Mayor Bloomburg closed down the Occupy Wall Street 'studio' at that time (and a shoddy one at that to keep costs down) where they were housed out of bad weather using computers, and coordinating Livestreaming, for a Sprinkler Violation and would not let them back in and even arrested a few for asking really tough questions like: "why isn't it the building owner that is responsible for this"?

The OWS-ers fortunately had prior knowledge when a required legal order was put on the door the night before and because a couple of exhausted people had slept there over night and saw it early the next morning before the police showed up, a lot of the equipment, but not all, had been removed. It was a financial blow, but not as bad as it could have been. I watched a video captured by a guy with his cellphone, they had decided to use to document the event simply as protection, just in case, showing the whole incident a couple of months or more ago.

Interview: Time: 51 minutes

From the description at YouTube:

    In-depth interview with internationally renowned author, journalist and syndicated columnist Naomi Klein on her new book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism". Klein is best known for her book from the year 2000, the international bestseller "No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies". It was called "A Movement Bible" by the New York Times referring to its incredible impact on the anti-globalization movement.
Naomi Klein also penned No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies which, ironically, I have been against for decades for many reasons; the foremost being loss of US jobs and horrid Slave Labor as the shipping of jobs elsewhere was happening back then. I saw it first hand in the garment industry where I worked for a few months in Pass Christian, Ms. This was after the passing of NAFTA and a lot of the manufacturing was going to Mexico and Central America early on. The China market was just opening up, if memory serves.

It also seemed like a form of usury to me to buy a product with the brand name embossed with flourish on it as a Badge of Honor or identity such as 'who U are'..The ultimate Marketing trick to get a uninformed, "Keep Up With The Jones'" society of people who have that drummed into their heads constantly, to over pay for an item and then Advertise said product for free for the company !! I first noticed this back in the late 80's early 90's. I have actually been called cynical by many due to my views on this! Admittedly I am not a 'loyal consumer' of top name brand items. :) Note: She lives in Canada...a lot of the really good journalists who work for the Big Name publications, have left the hood (aka USA ) so to speak, to be able to practice their craft of journalism without reproach or fear of threats or worse. Pity, but we have the internet still .... at least for now. March 8 may indeed be an indication of what kind of Internet we will have in the near future. Mark your calendar, my computer will be unplugged and offline that day just as a safety measure. I read George Orwell's novel 1984 at a very impressionable age and am not sorry one bit.

This is the first article we have published by Karin Rougeau, who is a frequent information contributor to Salem-News.com. Karin has more to offer than updates and leads, and we are pleased to add her name to our pages as a writer who challenges the list of criteria plaguing this planet.

Under the guise of fighting terrorism, the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the events of 9/11. A mere 3 criminal charges of terrorism a year are attributed to this act, which is mainly used for no-knock raids leading to drug-related arrests without proper cause for search and seizure. The laws are simply a means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html

Editor: I took a look at your site, very good, bravo.  Maybe we could do a feature sometime, thanks.

Hank: anon has the right not to identify him/herself. I do agree with what was said. We all know that the Government is checking all the blocks and even some news sites especially if they report anything negativw about Obama. DHS does not target terrorists from the Middle East but the American white male. So think again why anyone wants to identify themselves? we will be in re-education camps before long anyway, if Obama gets his wish.

Anon: If you have not the courage to make your ID known, your comment has no possible meaning for a rational person and is waste of time and space here. I won't wast space either on the comments you made since they speak for themselves to any rational person and supply solid sense to your need for anonymity.

to anon...quit complaining and support Ron Paul. Ron will not be president, most know that, the media wont let him, and even if he makes it past the media, they will just kill him. but supporting him is most important..Lets let them know we wont have their two party system shoved down our throat, and we will not vote, or support who the mainstream media says we should support.. Judge Napolitano was fired for supporting Ron Paul, same with Pat Buchanan and even Stephen Colbert got suspended for supporting Ron Paul. Getting the picture here?


stephen February 22, 2012 3:22 pm (Pacific time)

ditto for anon, except for one thing...blaming the democrats. The republicans are just as bad and sometimes worse..If you want to talk history, the elite planned to use the two party controlled system to control back in the early 1900's.

We do not live in a Democracy anymore, we live in a baby dictatorship. Our rights are being taken away every day. Back in 1933 Hitler came to power, the brown shirts took over the Country, swastika flags all over Germany, then Europe. We knew the enemy then but today it is a man in the White House with a suit and a tie. The takeover is no different, little by little we lose our freedom. If you don't know your History, you damn to repeat it. Today we have the Demorats, one party, out for power and greed, sure don't care about the American People. The Obama Administration destroyed the Country and the whole World. God help us if he steals the election to get another term.
