Download Hour1 Download Hour2This week a 'bigger picture' show, with two hour long pieces which outline the stark contours of the rapidly emerging police state that is the USA of 2012. Our main speakers are Peter Dale Scott, Peter Phillips and Frank Morales.
In our second hour, we hear an disturbing interview with Frank Morales on the bigger picture of the ongoing militarization of USA. He begins by describing an essay on "The American Military Coup of 2012", a fictional essay written 20 years ago which describes the coup as "the outgrowth of trends already visible as far back as 1992" such as "the massive diversion of military forces to civilian uses, particularly law enforcement".
As domestic dissent is becoming more widespread, more violence is needed by the US government and its legal maneuvering become ever more ridiculous. Morales talks about the Military-Media complex, since perpetual reinforcement by the media is required to keep people confused, afraid and submissive to the iron fist which is ever more clearly visible below the velvet glove of 'democracy'.
|"We have been undergoing an ongoing military coup for quite some time now, some would say since the late 60's."|
— Frank Morales
