  1. “Polarized America” that’s how they want it.

    When faced on the battlefield with a numerically superior enemy, one must attempt to divide his enemy into smaller, more easily dispatched opponents – or even more ideally, divide them against one another, and have them defeat each other without ever drawing your sword.

    Never in human history has there been a more effective way for tyrants to rule over large groups of people who, should they ever learn to cooperate, would easily throw off such tyranny.

    This is a game that has continued throughout the centuries and continues on to this very day. While racial, religious, and political divisions are aspects of human nature, they are viciously exploited by the ruling elite to divide and destroy any capacity of the general public to organize, resist, or compete with established sociopolitical and economic monopolies.

    Quote from the article:

    “There is something unique about tragedies like mass shootings. They remind us of the inevitability of death, that at any moment we too may become a victim.”

    If you believe or are worried that at “any moment” you too may become a victim of terrorism or a mass shooting I think you need a psychiatrist, just be sure and read MIA to avoid bad treatments.
