[ For your consideration ]
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse,
while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity.
While rights are sold for security,
the federal government, swollen with power,
become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance
— these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence.
Neighbour is turned against neighbour as the value of the dollar plunges to zero,
food supplies are depleted,
and everyone is a terror suspect.
There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks.
Public executions of those even suspected of dissent.
Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
