People Are In Favor Of A Police State

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from “After illustrating their enthusiasm for repealing the Bill of Rights, a video shows Americans happily signing a petition to support a ‘Nazi-style Orwellian police state,’ in what easily represents the most shocking footage of its kind to date.

“Citing issues with how the government shutdown has impacted the ability of the police to ‘keep the community safe,’ Dice tells San Diegans that there is a need to ‘increase the Orwellian system.’

“‘Not a problem,’ responds one man as he signs the petition.

“‘We just want to model it after the Nazi Germany system to keep people safe and secure,’ Dice tells another individual. …

“The standard bearer for using satirical petitions to illustrate how misinformed Americans really are stretches all the way back to 1990, when it was repeatedly proven that people would sign petitions to ban water, but only if it was renamed “dihydrogen monoxide.” Penn and Teller reproduced the social experiment in 2003 when they were successful in getting environmentalists to sign a similar petition.

“However, Dice has proven that some element of trickery is no longer necessary to convince Americans to support ludicrously draconian policies.

“He quite clearly spells it out to them on numerous occasions what they are supporting – an Orwellian police state modeled on Nazi Germany.”

My Comment: Personal safety is much more important for our egoistic nature than some imagined freedoms. Naturally, first it is necessary to ensure human safety, food, shelter, family, security, and they provide them personal and social freedoms—this is the pyramid of our needs (according to the principle “No flour, no Torah”). This should be considered during the dissemination of integral education and upbringing.
