Years and years ago Reagan floated the idea of a National Identity Card...sort of like Nazi agents were always asking for from underground freedom fighters..."your paypas pleeze"? It was scoffed at then..."Un-American" everyone said. ItŽll happen...weŽll wantit so our children can be "safe".
They wont have dental or health care, no money for schools, distressed environment, increaseed pollution and militarism, decreased civil liberties...but they will be "safe". From what you ask? From Freedom of course. Fascism works ONLY when people "yearn" for it.
