A new American President (Donald Trump?) has been elected on a wave of fear: fear of war with an emerging China and re-emerging Russia, and the old wars on terror and drugs.
The government’s greatest concern is not al Qaeda, ISIS, Iran, China or Russia; rather, it is deemed to be American citizens who might rise up and attempt to overthrow an increasingly totalitarian government.
There are those who know the wars are trumped up and an excuse for spying on U.S. citizens who are trying to expose the extent of the program.
