Has this been the plan for a long while?
Terror, Terror, Terror... Where's The Proof?
The life-blood of terrorism is built upon the all-pervasive and continuing irrational-fear of the unknown. Think of this as you would of someone yelling "FIRE" in a crowded theater, when there is no fire at all. The resulting panic can cost lives, and will create havoc in that small place. But when a government or several governments collude to scream "TERRORISM," using unclear and unfounded "security" claims as their only justification-then that is different not just in the size of the audience affected, but with the added political-lie that is policy-based; the result is to terrify and threaten the world at the same time as they continue to build the future depicted above.
Unfortunately I played a small part in helping the feral government obtain an image for their plan. I did this 32 years ago in 1978: Two years before Reagan stole the White House, and eleven years before the Berlin Wall went down in 1989. This is significant because while Ronnie claimed credit for the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the demise of the Soviet Union: It was also on his watch that the world failed to get their promised "peace dividend" when the cold war officially ended. Instead we got a new and all-powerful; enemy to oppose-worldwide Terrorism!
This image does not fit in with the other topics at all, in the Republican project called The Forgotten Victims of Violent Crime.*
When I went to the interview with the person who described what was needed at Research West Inc. in Emeryville California the interview was conducted from behind a bullet-proof glass wall. She had no sense of humor, and she was the personification of paranoia incorporated. It bothered me that this subject should have been included with the other topics but I didn't fight it because it seemed harmless at the time. It was only later, after Reagan took office that I began to grasp the depth of how important it was to begin to focus on Terrorism, long before anyone would take this 'threat' seriously.
What eventually became clear to me was that this almost baseless-fear in 1978 would become the centerpiece for the War on Terror that has now become what its owners had always planned for it to be-the non-specific nightmare of Fear that cannot be banished because it is a phantom an omnipresent shadow that lurks behind every gesture and potentially every misunderstood encounter.
