In the past few days, the State police and media said something really bizarre and self-contradictory. They said:
- We think that terrorists might attack on the 10th anniversary of 9/11/01. BE SCARED!
- There's nothing to worry about. Do whatever you were planning to do anyway.
It's almost like Cuba's government. They always said "The USA is planning to attack! They didn't attack yesterday. That proves our leadership is brilliant."
It's exactly the same thing. They said "Terrorists might attack again!" When they don't attack, that proves that the leaders did a great job.
Of course, if there is another successful attack, that proves that government needs more power and more resources.
The way the spin works, the State insiders win either way. If there's no terrorist attack, that proves the leaders are brilliant. If there is another terrorist attack, that proves that the leaders need more power and more resources.
It's pretty obvious, the way that the police and mainstream media are intentionally scaring people.
