The Mail Online is running an article regarding the training of members of society in ‘terrorist spotting’, presumably so they can inform our omnipotent protectors, the State.
Sixty thousand British civilians are being trained by the Home Office to spot terrorists, Gordon Brown revealed yesterday.
Huge numbers of staff on rail networks, at shops, public buildings and major sports venues have been picked out by MI5 and the police for the special training – teaching them to watch for ‘suspicious behaviour’ and respond swiftly to an atrocity.
Apart from the fact that a ‘nation of informers’ is reminiscent of other deeply unhealthy societies, this seems like typical big government overkill. People need training in this? In regards to terrorism and Islam, just read the Quran, in chronological order if you want the real context of Mohammed (at the beginning with few believers and many enemies, and the end when he had an army and mucho power). Oh and remember to keep in mind the use of Abrogation.
Regarding terrorists as a whole, terror is defined loosely as the use of terror (fear) for political ends. In the event of multiple groups desiring such, it would only be logical to focus on the one which ‘creates the greatest fear’ and enacts the ‘greatest political change’ as they would, by definition, be the greater terrorist and thus the greatest threat.
The United Kingdom currently has 60 million residents (more like 80 million unofficially). What group has the greatest access to mass media, to the statute making process, the economy, the schools, the borders, the local authority, the courts, the security services etc?
Who is continually telling you to fear? To accept changes in your life which restrict your freedom? To impose more rules and regulations on you and to tell you how to think?
Which one is more likely to kick down your door for no real reason, to steal your children from you and tell them how to think?
Which one is closer to total power over you and your family?
Which one is the greatest threat to your life and liberty?
Considering this, I think it they are pretty easy to spot once you see the signs. You could look here for a start.
