The Man in the High Castle

Laying the Foundation of a Tyranny

1. 'Legal' Concentration of Power

Hindenburg created a new government, made up of a chancellor and cabinet ministers, to rule by emergency decrees instead of by laws passed by the Reichstag (congress). Hitler managed to maintain a posture of legality throughout the Nazification process.

2. Sudo military\police force loyal to the 'party'

The SA was the paramilitary unit of the Party, a propaganda arm that became known for its strong arm tactics of street brawling and terror. Although the German public did not complain much when SA activities were directed against Jews, communists, and socialists, by 1934 there was general concern about the level of civic violence for which the "brown shirts" were responsible. The SA had been instrumental in Hitler's rise to power.

3. Prison Camps

Concentration camps, established as early as 1933, were used to hold political prisoners and opponents of the regime.

4. Disarm the soon to be Oppressed

'1938 German Weapons Act' & 'Regulations Against Jews' Possession of Weapons', in short Nazi party members were exempted from any registration or permitting of firearms, and Jews were denied the right to possess firearms.

1. 'Legal' Concentration of Power

"So I’m here to say that we can’t wait for an increasingly dysfunctional Congress to do its job," Obama said. "Where they won’t act, I will." A Series of Executive Orders dating from the 1960s onwards underlines the history of FEMA. The plan for total control of every aspect of our lives has been under construction for a long time. Below are just some of the Executive Orders relating to FEMA.
  • Executive Order 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
  • Executive Order 10995 allows Seizure of all communications media in the United States.
  • Executive Order 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
  • Executive Order 11000 allows Seizure of all American people for work forces under federal supervision including the splitting of families if the government finds it necessary.

2. Sudo military\police force loyal to 'power'

Could be the TSA, FEMA, FEMA Fusion Centers, police or all of the above. TSA routinely violates the 4th amendment performing warrant-less searches at airport terminals, they are beginning to perform road side checkpoints and sporting event security. They are not law enforcement officers, nor have they taken oaths to defend the constitution or enforce public laws. Their leaders are appointed not elected. Police brutality goes unreported in the media, officers are undaunted by video recordings and are infrequently reprimanded. There seems to be a top down approval of brutal tactics.

3. Prison Camps

FEMA has secretly built detention centers in several states, complete with chain link fences, barbwire and playgrounds for children.

4. Disarm the soon to be Oppressed

American media and federal gov't in a frenzy to ban 'assault' rifles.
