I could see large scale camps being used to house people when the next financial collapse occurs, when unemployment is even higher and the foreclosure rate continues. They could be like institutionalized hoovervilles, to keep the "unproductive hordes" away from the enclaves of privilege.
It could become an informal de-facto system of apartheid where people with almost no rights, no political power, no voice, and no social standing are kept in isolation, fully excluded from a society that they already cannot participate in. We see trends like this in places such as Brazil and Chile. It's not that far-fetched.
It would of course be done in the name of welfare or humanitarianism, helping people by giving them a place to sleep and food to eat but of course it would also serve to keep them excluded from the society that failed them.
or maybe not who knows
Keep your powder dry friends.:cool:
I want The Camps. I want them now. I figure the only Camp members will be hippies and other Dem dirtbags. When they knock on my door, I flash my VRWC card and they pass on by. Shit works like lamb's blood.
And I have a paid in advance lifetime membership. That means that I receive a weekly delivery of food, beverage and ammunition (from a menu no less) while whatever catastrophe is taking place. Build Dem Camps now!!!
Adam, I know this has always been one of your favorite subjects so I found this pic just for you... :D
I'm kind of disappointed that there isn't more discussion about NDAA and SOPA on this forum.
Unfortunately, the FEMA camp part pretty much derailed the rest of it, but NDAA is very real and super-creepy by just about anyones' standards. The lies and deception that swirled around Obama actually singing it makes it even worse.
