There are many that continue to labor under the erronous notion that the U.S. is a free democratic country. Nothing could be further from the truth. For many, this fairy tale is their entire identity and ripping it from them would be like depriving a heroin addict just enough drugs from getting sick.
We’re being fed a series of carefully contrived fictions that bear no resemblance to reality. The powers-that-be want us to feel threatened by forces beyond our control (terrorists, shooters, bombers).

They want us distrustful of each other, divided by our prejudices, and at each other’s throats. Most of all, they want us to continue to march in lockstep with their dictates.The Rutherford Institute
