I agree. The PATRIOT Act has been law for 20 years or so. I do not see these people of the deep state/ cabal giving up their authoritarian grip on power anytime soon.

It'd be nice if Glenn could cite any actual data on people being addicted by the state and "not wanting to return to normal" Just making anecdotal shit up otherwise.

It was his opinion based on observation. He wasn’t stating as fact.

Totally agree. But it’s a replacement for religion. It’s attempting to replace the feeling of God’s protective grace.
