We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Homeland Security: Preparing for Massive Civil War
I am quite reluctant to post alarming articles without having determined that they are based on reasonably solid evidence. I spent a couple hours this morning checking out information contained in this posting. On the whole I have concluded that there is a sound basis to their claim that the US ruling class is preparing for massive civil resistance.
For a while I was concerned about the number of error links contained in this posting and the linked postings. The errors for all those from Alexander Higgins' blog was explained by damage sustained from Hurricane Sandy. The others were unexplained errors on YouTube website. (Two examples: "http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39xn1VkrHVQ"; and a sub-posting link (the activation of FEMA detention facilities) contained in the linked article entitled, "From America to Amerika: The End Game" from this link, "There are 300 or more FEMA camps distributed around the country".) However, there are numerous postings of YouTube videos featuring the FEMA camps.
From my observations the ruling One Percent through its control of the government will always do what they want regardless of its legality, but they always prefer to cover themselves with at least some veneer of legality. (Example: the lockup of US citizens of Japanese ancestry during WWII.) This is what I think they are attempting to do with the two bills discussed in this article: "The Defense Authorization Act" and H.R. 6566 “The Mass Fatality Planning and Religious Considerations Act”. In other words, there is considerable evidence that they are already prepared to lock up mass numbers of Americans when circumstances against the interests of the One Percent require it. Passage of the two bill would only provide the necessary legal cover.
(By the way, neither bill has yet to pass both Houses of Congress and signed into law. A good way to track them is through the website--govtrack.us.)
