Pete Session and the New Detention Centers

This letter to Pete is based on an article found at the New York Times and a few other places.

I've been reading about Haliburton's new no bid contract to build detention centers in the US to house people during crisis and for other purposes not yet defined, in a number of mainstream rags.

I've also been seeing mainstream articles about an increasning number of sensitive government services being put under corporate control and oversight. Voting is the most visible example of selling democracy to private corporations, but the OSIS is troubling too.

So I have to ask, as you work to increasingly turn the US into a corporately controlled military financial complex, what kind of future are you trying to build for your grandchildren?

As we saw in USSR, the system you are building can't be anything but corrupt and backstabbing. And in them, political systems shift and turn. How can you be sure that this system won't be turned again you and yours? How can you be certain that you and your will never get in the way of those that own the country?

The US you are building, in which every function turns on grift, bribery, secret files and secret detentions isn't going to be friendly to many people at all. Even those at the top will have to keep a watchful eye on each other. We've seen al of this before.

Why would you want this for America?

I work for a huge corporate conglomerate. And I don't know what to do about it yet...

I don't think anything can be done about it.

Those in positions of power, know that a global crisis is coming.

They are reacting, by attempting to centralize control. they are attempting to institutionalize the problem.

What we know from ecological studies and studies of civilizations is that when energy or industry is added to a system it groes more complex and interconnected. When these are removed, the system fragments.

Our leaders/power brokers are putting a great deal of effort into reversing the natural trend. It is impossible for them to do this, so there efforts are going to increase the harm done to the system as they fight to maintain imbalances.

They'll go broke and ruin themselves trying to hold the Empire together.

Great observations Sir Dog, Don't you feel like that actor in the original Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, running down the highway, peering in cars and shouting, There here! There here! I know I do. Whatever you do Sir Dog, don't accept any Pods!

Weasel, that's as good or better an explanation for it all as any I have seen (and using far fewer words.) They cannot win against the natural forces of the world... but they can't see it.
