We are all just one mistake away from going to prison. But what if we already made that mistake and didn't realize it. What if instead of being stripped down and given a number as we are marched into our cell, we have actually been constructing the very prison we are now being housed in. It is very cliched to say that live in a police state, but I think we have gone beyond this point. The thought came to me as I pondered the sad state of race relations in the United States. After so many years, you would think that we would live in perfect harmony. This is obviously not the case. In fact, we are all being driven from imposed segregation to self-imposed segregation. And that is how I realized that our nation has become a prison. If you have ever watched a prison movie or documentary, you see that prisoners all segregate themselves into racial groups, allegedly for protection. Essentially, the prison is run by ethnically divided extremist groups, while the majority of prisoners sit back and try to not get hurt.
So what is the difference between inside and outside of prison. The left has been hard at work forcing ethnic groups to cling to one another and not "melt" into America. Each of these groups gets represented by various extremist group. These groups, through their extremism, set the agenda for our nation, while the majority of Americans, or prisoners, allow it to happen. From Gay activism to Black Panthers, from La Rassa to the Council on American Islamic Relations, and don't forget the old klan boys. Each of these groups carve out a territory and enforce their rule through intimidation. Instead of fighting against this, most Americcans just want to "do their time". What a concept. We have allowed the left to turn life into a sentence.
It is easy to say we live in a prison because of the size and scope of our federal government and the limitations it places on our freedoms. However, that can be considered subjective. I think the greater evidence of our imprisonment is how we live our lives, as prisoners. Don't you think it is time for a prison riot.
