The cornerstone in this country now is control. Everything is about control, and unless you want to be an overt, literal slave to the State then you might want to pay attention, because we’re now that close to such a scenario. Every time one of these “officials” speaks to the nation on national television I have to cringe as I wonder if this will be the time when they just openly decree that “for the security of the country” there will be no more orchestrated shows to give you the illusion that you’ve voted in a new “leader” . . . because you need to know your place.
