President Thomas Jefferson:
“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

Once upon a time perhaps, wars and killing people resulted in increased freedom. Today, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The American people are becoming increasingly less free on the back of endless fear propaganda – and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is leading the charge. A new study finds that since 2001, TSA staff has grown from 16,500 to over 65,000, a near-400% increase. In the same amount of time, total passenger enplanements in the U.S. have increased less than 12%. In other words, TSA staff has grown over 30 times more than the number of actual passengers flying has grown. There is no end in sight.

A government, so far outnumbered by citizens, could never commit such heinous violations of individual liberty and freedom on it’s own. The only way a government can continue to grow and quietly oppress is through the members of the community consuming the propaganda, and socially enforcing it on the streets. Until people stop cheering for war, and the killing of whoever the next enemy of the hour is, we will continue in a steep, downward spiral towards 1984.
