LAPD Wants You To Spy On Your Neighbors

What a despicable ad.

Yeah, yeah, yeah I know there are already neighborhood watch programs.. you know, where you look to make sure that the moving truck next door is really supposed to be there and isn't just some burgler emptying out the Joneses house, but this just video encourages people to spy on and report people - and in the name of "America" (iWatch my America)

Suspicious activity?
Terrorist activity?

Who is this week's bogeyman?
Is your neighbor a terrorist?

A population in fear is easier to control.

Nazi propaganda accomplished the same thing. promoted the same thing. They knew that as long as the public felt threatened, they would obey commands that would, in their eyes, remove that threat.

"All propaganda has to be popular and has to adapt its spiritual level to the perception of the least intelligent of those towards whom it intends to direct itself." -Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf ("My Struggle"), Vol. I

I think the terrorists are the ones plundering our treasury.
Shall we report them?
