The Reason We Have a Police State

A dozen reasons could be given for why we observe the present police state. Such as:

  • The police began dressing in black and militarizing themselves in the 1990’s, and through small, incremental steps conditioned us to accept this as normal.
  • The government doesn’t listen to us and doesn’t hold police accountable, so police have no incentive to behave responsibly or morally.
  • The drug war and the prison industrial complex allowed police to increase their budgets for weaponry and harsher restrictions, and they give police career boosts for locking up more citizens for victimless crimes.
  • The modern American is too apathetic and senseless to care about important issues like police abuse, so the problem continues to grow unchecked.



And many more besides.

Probably all of those reasons, or a combination thereof, do lead us to the present predicament. They all have truth to them.

But there’s another reason — perhaps the MAIN reason — and it’s rarely mentioned. And it’s something you can control right now.

Larken Rose , author of the landmark book The Most Dangerous Superstitionmakes it crystal clear in the video below.

If you do nothing else today, watch this video, let it sink in, and give it to everybody you know.

You might begin to see things very differently.

    I agree that the police have become the scum of the earth, many times worse than most criminals but…you evaluation states that the police and government doesn’t listen to the public any more and then you state that the public is apathetic…

    If the police and the government won’t listen to the public, it doesn’t matter if the public is apathetic or shouting from the roof tops. It’s going to be their way or else!!. As you stated, anything the public is concerned about just falls on deaf ears and when there is a large protest, for example, protesting about police brutality, the police come in and use brutality to break up the protest………… Usually, the protest is peaceful until the police start brutalizing people……… It is ironic that the police use brutality to resist a protest about police brutality.

    It is like the police killing a suicide attemptee in order to stop a suicide attempt, but no one has stated that police use logic……

      If the lawmakers and media get calls and letters every day then something will happen. They think only poor neighborhoods are effected. I happens within 5 miles of everyone.

        Lawmakers might look like they are doing something but the police won’t adhere to what the lawmakers come up with, the police don’t adhere to laws now… Maybe if the media gets in gear, the police may at least look like they are straightening up because the cops want the appearance of being heroes but, as usual, the cops will find ways to do an end run around public perception…….

    The reason they are given more and more latitude and are graced with impunity is that eventually, they will become the “goon squad” between the citizen and the “boys in the club.” It’s like feeding your best, mean-ass guard dogs good steak. So they will remain loyal to and defend their keepers. They don’t want them too bright or too reserved.

      This is exactly it and exactly why this is a terrifying time in American history. We are becoming Nazi Germany and not enough people seem to see that. The video above shines a pretty bright light on it. There are still too many sheeple who don’t get it, will never get it. They are the scariest of all.
