In various writings the author has observed the dangers of corruption through immersion in too broad a scope of alien influences. Infection from those influences through osmosis is a natural threat. (For just one reference in Holy Scripture of this warning see Psalm 125:3.)
While this country was neither quarantined nor imbued with sterling purity prior to World War II, its projection into Europe resulted in a gradual unconscious assimilation of some of those attitudes and traditions. While possibly only peripheral, some of those attitudes include those which spawned the Sturm Abeilung, Schutzstaffel, and Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti.
Alert observers have recognized the unconscious — and, perhaps, even conscious — incorporation of certain of those proclivities into American structures and policies over the last seventy-five (75) years. A recent example is an instance of which I learned from a recent article.
A perusal of this article reveals a new and expanded policy expounded in a Federal Bureau of Investigation internal memorandum.
Its implications are incredible, and tend to bespeak a terrifying image of those Nazi Germany and Soviet Union agencies.
Little more can be added by me than the observations in the article. I then only post this to enable a possible further dissemination and awareness of them.
