Doug Casey on What Happens After the Next 9/11

Doug Casey on What Happens After the Next 9/11
Is a police state in the US possible? Absolutely.

That’s because people are essentially the same the world over, regardless of their culture, religion, race, or what-have-you. A certain percentage of them are sociopaths.

There is a standard distribution of sociopaths across time and space. It’s a function of Pareto’s Law, better known as the 80-20 rule. 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Another 20% are responsible for 80% of the crime. 20% of the population always winds up with 80% of the wealth. And so forth, through all areas of human endeavor. This observation can be represented by a bell-shaped curve—a “standard distribution”—with a small minority at each extreme, but the large majority in the middle.

The people who will take us to a police state are sociopaths—criminal personalities who don’t respect the liberty or property of others. And sociopaths gravitate towards government, and eventually come to control it.


  1. "Which is worse, ignorance or apathy?"

    "I don't know and I don't care."

  2. Yeh well.. As a better thinker than I am pointed out some time ago. The "80-20" rule only works in peace. Once war or civil war break out, everyone gets sucked in whether they wish to be or no. It doesn't matter what the "80%" wants. Death factory will make the rules. Anyone that doesn't chose a side becomes the enemy. It boils down to wolves and sheep. The sheep are quickly eaten, then the wolves fight over the scraps. War is, and always has been, gangs of young men, led by old men, doing all the "evil" things to strangers, that they are not allowed to do at home. When that starts the only "rules" that nature recognizes are mathematical and physical. Everything else gets suspended for the duration.---Ray
