POLICE STATE GROPING
November 17, 2010
According to the talking heads and herd of ‘independent minds’ the main problem with the misnamed TSA and its new methodology of full body x-ray scanning and physical assault is a trade-off between privacy ‘concerns’ and ‘security.’ As usual, the alternative sources as well as the accomplices of “the autocratic government” miss the point.
The point of this new policy is to accustom Americans to having officials treat them like criminals and chattel. “Hands-up” or perhaps one should say, “haender hoch!” Get in the machine, get your hands up, at a certain angle no less, spread your legs and get zapped by x-rays. Your bodily structure is reviewed by ostensibly normal and security-minded workers of the nascent police state. Or you can ‘choose’ to be physically molested by uniformed quirks that will do anything for money. This is “the new state, clattering in the finery of divine honors… that presides over the slow suicide of all that is called life.”
In the name of “security” the “new idol” subjects citizens to a loss of their humanity and an experience of subjugation. “At such a price, one pays far too dearly for ‘general security’ and, what is more insane, produces the very opposite of general security,’” it produces a state of humiliation, degradation and fear; it mandates compliance.
As for so often in “family courts” whose role is to destroy fathers and families, and more recently in Banks that, using the Sub-prime disaster as a ‘rationale’ intrude with questions into every area of your life, a tendency also adopted in recent years by public-funded schools at every level…
As for flight security, there is an alternative: Israel already has shown to the world how to deal with such threats and this was discussed, briefly in the media after 9/11. It’s time for Israel again to be a model to the nations not only to preempt terrorism but to protect the dignity of human beings from the intrusions of “an autocratic government” against which the sages warn us “to be on guard” (Ethics of the Fathers 2:3).
“Only where the state ends, there begins the human being who is not [treated as] superfluous” or an inferior object. The vague “war on terror” has shown that its real goal is State control and intimidation of people; of the State setting itself up as “’the ordering finger of God am I,’ thus roars the monster.” In this cruel de-humanizing game, Ishmael serves Esau as a useful tool and the triumph of ‘Esau’ will be a nightmare of global Caesarism already visible and substantially in place.

Meanwhile, George Bush talks poignantly about his book, the hologram goes through his variety of arrogant poses and “nothing is but what is not.” Murder of the human by the State already is past the realm of fantasy and in its oppressive grasp life is becoming “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing” but the raw, scornful grab and abuse of power over other human beings and human decency.
