I have just started reading the works of Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn including One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and The Gulag Archipelago. I must admit that this work has me utterly speechless. I had read the fictional books of George Orwell (1984) and Aldous Huxleys (Brave New World) and thought I was prepared for this work but I was very wrong. It is almost beyond my comprehension to think about what Solzhenitsyn is writing. How could a secret police get that much power? How could this Archipelago (network of secret police installations, camps, prisons, transit centers, communications facilities, transportation systems and espionage organizations) get established. How could the people stand by and let it happen. These questions are answered in this literary masterpiece.
I have thought about the Fema camps being erected in this country (see Police State series by Alex Jones at Infowars.com) and wondered if they will be used in the same way Russia used their "camps" and if arrests will be made using these secret watch lists that the U.S. government has written. Anybody concerned about tyranny and how it can come about right under ones nose would benefit greatly from reading these works.
Here's the rub, if it happens in this country like it did in Russia over 70 years ago, now the powers that be have a new technological overlay to use at their disposal including psychotronic prisons (see The Matrix Deciphered).
I am interested in intelligent comments..........
