Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely

Post by Shirleypal » 02-27-2008 03:34 PM

I am not sure which of the below stories is more alarming. National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51) authorizes Bush - in the event of a "catastrophic emergency" - to do whatever he deems necessary to ensure "continuity of government." This could include everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution to launching a nuclear attack. Hmm, are these the "potential war crimes" that Bush & co. are shielding themselves from? But if the last story has any validity, there won't be any need to detain millions of sheople – I mean people.

Rule by fear or rule by law?

"But the real question is: What kind of "new programs" require the construction and refurbishment of detention facilities in nearly every state of the union with the capacity to house perhaps millions of people?"

Sheep in human clothing – scientists reveal our flock mentality

"Results from a study at the University of Leeds show that it takes a minority of just five per cent to influence a crowd’s direction – and that the other 95 per cent follow without realising it."
