Charles J. Hunsinger
It is as if I were watching an old WWII movie about the unbridled and brutal authority of the German Gestapo or the nightmare of the Marxism of Joseph Stalin or, perhaps, the
savagery of Communist China. Can you recall pictures of Jews, Gypsies and undesirables being marched naked into the waiting gas chambers. That is what I see, as I watch TV and internet reports of adults allowing themselves to be sexually photographed and physically and sexually groped by the State (TSA) and, perhaps, the most heinous and an absolute perversion of the State is the forcing of such humiliation upon the innocence of a child. It can be said, perhaps, that the government of The United States, as did the governments of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, China and the Soviet Union license itself, by virtue of power, in the name of a ‘greater good’ to demean, demoralize and to subjugate the masses. There are no gas chambers or work camps today, just a training exercise. You can be arrested, however and you can be fined. It is interesting to note that, of the countries mentioned above, the common thread through-out all of them was the quest of the socialist cause,
Freedom is not maintained with its absence, nor do we secure it by subjugating free people. As in the quest to cure cancer; killing the patient to do so is unacceptable. As in securing this nation our enemies must be killed not our freedom. But I do not think that is the objective of the State, as it now stands.
I am woefully reminded of a singular sentence, “when in the course of human events”.
