'No one is more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free'
Jimmy Dore discusses with NSA Whistleblower, William Binney, about the terrifying resemblance of Section 1021, issued by the National Defence Authorization Act in the United States, with Special Order 48, issued by the Nazis. This is just another evidence of the crypto-fascist nature of the neoliberal regime that grows rapidly in the United States and elsewhere. As in the case of Nazi Germany, Section 1021 aims to suppress every resistance against the regime.
As they point out:
The NDAA (National Defence Authorization Act), Section 1021, basically reads like Special Order 48, issued by the Nazis after 1933 Reichstag fire. They used that to effectively get rid of all of their opposition and anybody else they didn't like.
Now, all the government has to do is say 'you're a terrorist'. And there is all kinds of terrorism. For instance, the people up at Standing Rock, they declared them 'environmental terrorists'. Even the people with Occupy Wall Street, they can consider them terrorists. So then you don't get any rights, they can put you in jail without charging you with the crime for the rest of your life. That's what Section 1021 of the NDAA says. And no due process at all.
