- Contro la scuola - La Voce del Gongoro - "[...] lo scopo dell'educazione pubblica non è colmare di conoscenza i giovani della specie e svegliare la loro intelligenza... Nulla potrebbe essere più lontano dalla verità. Lo scopo... è semplicemente ridurre quanti più individui possibile allo stesso livello di sicurezza, per alimentare ed addestrare una cittadinanza standardizzata, per reprimere il dissenso e l'originalità. Questo è lo scopo negli Stati Uniti... ed è lo scopo in ogni altro posto. [...]"
- Evidence Suggests CIA Funded Experiments at State Hospital - cryptogon - "Few people in Vermont remember Dr. Robert W. Hyde, but one of his former patients can’t forget him. The doctor was involved in one of the nation’s darkest chapters in medical science: In the 1950s, Hyde conducted drug and psychological experiments at a Boston hospital through funding that apparently originated with the CIA. Later, he became director of research at the Vermont State Hospital. [...] News accounts and histories of the experiments have not mentioned the Vermont State Hospital, but a congressional committee concluded that dozens of institutions, some of which have never been identified, were involved in secret experiments for the CIA."
- U.S. Military Boosting “Homeland” Force to 20,000 by 2011 - MSNBC - "The U.S. military expects to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States by 2011 trained to help state and local officials respond to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe, according to Pentagon officials. [...] Before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, dedicating 20,000 troops to domestic response — a nearly sevenfold increase in five years — “would have been extraordinary to the point of unbelievable,” Paul McHale, assistant defense secretary for homeland defense, said in remarks last month at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. But the realization that civilian authorities may be overwhelmed in a catastrophe prompted “a fundamental change in military culture,” he said. [...] In 2005, a new Pentagon homeland defense strategy emphasized “preparing for multiple, simultaneous mass casualty incidents."
