Eric rants appropriately on one of the most disgraceful features of today’s American life, one earlier generations of Americans would never have put up with for a minute.
It makes you wonder: when did the people of this country become so European-style obedient, domesticated, and emasculated?
Heimatsicherheitsdeinst (literally, Homeland Security) and TSA have nothing to do with â€œcatching terroristsâ€ and everything to do with habituating people to arbitrary authority and routine degradation by government goons â€“ so as to make them feel the same way that prisoners feel â€“ I get the deer-in-the-headlights face from most of them.
I then go on to ask them whether they think it is beyond the means and capabilities of real â€œterroristsâ€ to charter a plane. As Eric remarks, today you could tell them to climb into the train car headed for the extermination camp, and just about all of them would.
The whole thing is absurd â€“ and evil almost beyond words. Perhaps the worst part is the willing complicity of so many people â€“ from the TSA geeks themselves (no one puts a gun to their head; they could seek honest work that didnâ€™t involve treating their fellow Americans like cattle on the way to Treblinka â€“ and thatâ€™s no coincidence, either) to the people who donâ€™t have to fly to keep their jobs/feed their families â€“ but do it anyhow. If even 10 percent of â€œoptionalâ€ flyers had refused to fly until the TSA was abolished, the TSA would be abolished. But most people will not inconvenience themselves in the least to take a stand for the right thing.
