is to understand the similarity between an occupied Ukraine and an occupied America. One half of American citizens are routinely belittled and denigrated by the occupying forces in the cities and towns all across America. Police units gear up and seek to punish Constitutionalists for their beliefs, religious or political. Whole agencies of the federal government have targeted and routinely spy on these people. They are confronted by their "Masters" in Connecticut with force.h/t: christian mercenary

One definite takeaway of the whole Ukrainian crisis
Sunday, February 16, 2014
The more people come to believe that a system is corrupt, the fewer will vote for honest politicians over the crooks who promise them special benefits. Everyone becomes cynical and complicit in the corruption. Politicians play divide and conquer, redistributing wealth from some groups to other groups. Trust vanishes from government and financial institutions. Everyone suspects everyone else ... and everyone steals. That is the formula for a failed nation, a failed city, and a failed community.
That is as true for the United States as it is for Russia, Cuba, or Nigeria.
A society is built on confidence in its institutions and its people. When that confidence falls apart, savagery takes its place. And then every man's hand is raised against his neighbor, children are taught to steal, men make excessive outward displays of honor and generosity while having no more conscience than a snake, women fear husbands, daughters fear their brothers, rulers fear everyone and everyone fears the rulers, informers proliferate, the secret police are everywhere, nothing works and everyone has someone to blame. This is what a failed society looks like and it is where the USA is headed.
