The Bogeyman Industry

John:  A  wonderful treatment of how the state’s bogeyman racket works can be found in the fictional work, Report From Iron Mountain. It helps to explain the post-Soviet Union crisis in which the American political establishment – left without a hobgoblin to terrorize Boobus into surrendering his/her liberty, property,  children, and grandchildren – has had to fabricate new imagined threats, be they drug-dealers, child-abductors [remember all those pictures of children on milk-cartons?], terrorists, immigrants, even aliens from other solar systems!  As long as Boobus continues to engage in this cranial-rectal-inversion, the Bushes, Clintons, Obamas, Cheneys, Holders, Pelosis, McCains,  Bachmanns, et al. will continue to have work.
