Or, if you do see it, there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
Back in the '90s, I misused a customer service job to do a little polling. About 80-90% of the populace supported the full overthrow of the government. Police don't go anywhere without their cars, and often a mob, because they'd get lynched in even the tamest neighborhoods.
Conversely, both Clinton and Trump had an 80% disapproval rating going into the primaries. Most people don't vote simply because they understand the system has no meaningful democratic inputs.
This is very early in the process, but the American culture is beginning its descent into a police state.
It's actually kind of the opposite; as screwed-up as it is now, it has gotten better. 9/11 pretty much destroyed the last dissent, sure... but in the '80s, Reagan literally turned the federal government into a cocaine-trafficking scheme. Death squads, started as a response to the Black Panthers, were god-damn common until the Oklahoma bombing; the K13 death squads were merely operated with government approval, but mostly it was a federally-coordinated political death squad scheme.
And, of course, we were the cover for running an offshore gang on the streets of the United States. It's really not a coincidence that literally every anti encountered has been into some fucked-up shit.
It's severely fucked up, and I don't expect the current administration to do anything except assist in helping offshore parties in launching terrorist attacks on the soil of the United States. It is, however, a lot better, simply because it... was a lot more fucked up than you know, and it largely is visible now solely because it does not have universal establishment promotion any longer.
Imagine growing up under that. Imagine knowing that what you're starting to know now is better than the much larger quantity of the same that came before it.
We know. But thank you.
