15. Have you ever read "They Thought They Were Free" ??

By author Milton Meyer.

He was an American who went over to Germany in the early fifties, and passed himself off as a gentile, in order to figure out what went on inside Germany in the 1930's.

It is a mind bending, life altering book.

The parallels between what went on there and what is going on here, are indeed all encompassing. And part of the program is that many subjects are on the "no discuss it" list.

Except here it is anyone that has a lousy credit record who is wearing a computerized equivalent of a yellow star. You can't hold a job, can't remain free from police hassles, can't do much once that credit record shows you are a "parasite." And for some that lousy credit record indicates you are a "terrorist." (Credit ratings actually cntribute to how people put on the no fly list are assembled!)
