Post The Rise of the American Corporate Security State/Edwards
From the outside, you'd be forgiven for pegging this as a product of tinfoil hat thinking. Subtitle: "Six Reasons to be Afraid." The slimness, suggesting a manifesto bashed out on an Underwood by a chain-smoking beatnik. (In fact, it uses a relatively small font.) The cover graphic of an eye staring at you through your cell phone.

In fact, it is an evenhanded and all the more frightening work by the executive director of the Government Accountability Project, which represents federal whistleblowers.

While the popular narrative has been, "Of course the government is shredding the Constitution," the extent to which most of the public actually thinks that holds doesn't approach the true terror of the reality. Clear violations of multiple amendments in the Bill of Rights. Actual crimes committed where the only one going to jail was the person who brought the crimes to light. Pre-dawn raids on the houses and families of whistle blowers. Serious consequences not for criminals and others at the fringes of law-abiding society, but for truly innocent patriots.

Read it and despair.

It's a book, in case that wasn't clear to anyone else.
