Tipping PointPosted: November 26, 2013
A few months ago, some of the keyboard kommandos were inciting their respective choirs with ways to spot the tipping point when revolution will become unavoidable. Well, I don’t know much about that, but being a natural-born optimist, I can tell you with certainty how to spot the moment when most people will be ready to embrace freedom. Here it is:
When cop shows that glorify thugs looking at your private records are clicked off to protect young, impressionable people from such a disturbing sight.
When no one is interested in the seeing the latest war movie.
When people spit at the sound of the word “patriot” and “veteran.”
When young men snort at the idea of “joining the military.”
When people are revulsed by TeeVee shows that idolize cops “grilling suspects” and extracting confessions by use of intimidating mind games and tricks.
When a military man can look his officer in the eye and say, “Gee Sarge, I just don’t feel like killing anyone today.”
When a SWAT thug says to his commander, “Couldn’t we just knock and politely wait a few minutes for them to open the door?”
When policemen everywhere come home mid-shift and announce to their wives, “I quit. I’m just no good at robbery and kidnapping. I think I’ll look for a job where I can make useful things.”
