For many years now MassResistance has been trying to warn Americans that the homosexual movement, backed by Obama and other narcissists with a lust for power for the sake of power, is fighting hard for "transgender rights" and "gender identity non-discrimination" laws because these laws are the entré to fundamentally transforming society. Once these laws are in place, we will no longer be allowed to distinguish between male and female, nor will parents be allowed to protect their children against 'otherly-gendered' sexual predators or even themselves from aggressive sexual advances.

All of this madness and more became the 'norm' in the former Soviet Union where even 'thought' was a crime:
"Thought crime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for awhile...but sooner or later they were bound to get you." George Orwell, 1984
To get an idea of what that madness was like let us imagine that pathologically twisted color-blind people have managed to seize absolute control of our country and have forbidden Americans from distinguishing between the colors yellow (for bananas) and purple (for plums). Special politically correct 'color' police armed with the force of 'depraved' law patrol farmers markets, personal gardens, grocery stores and restaurants, scrutinizing faces for signs of politically incorrect 'thought' in order to make sure that no one selects yellow bananas or purple plums which indicate that they are discriminating between yellow and purple. Of course the color police are not color-blind themselves but because they too are pathologically twisted they receive enormous pleasure from psychologically bullying, terrorizing and dominating other people.
Natan Sharansky, a dissident in the former Soviet Union describes existence there as madness enforced by tyranny where,
"...there were no dissidents (because) they were simply killed immediately." Under the terrorist-tactics of hate crime laws, speech codes, and other thought-control tactics, everyone became double thinkers. To outside observers notes Sharansky, double thinkers appear as true believers: "everybody says the same thing, everybody votes the same way, everybody speaks with passion." But this is an illusion caused by fear of speaking the truth, of discriminating between good and evil, truth and lie, normal and abnormal. These people, he noted, "live with self-censorship throughout their lives. Since the regime demands loyalty right from childhood, many don't even notice. They just automatically control how they express themselves." But when a "fear society disappears or becomes weak, people suddenly start saying what they feel," Sharansky commented, and "It's such a big relief."
To determine if a society is fear-based, Sharansky applies what he defines as the "town square test." In this test, if you,
"...can go to the center of town and publicly express your views without being punished, you have a free society" even though that society may not be just. However, if you are "punished for your views you live in a fear society....In such societies there are always three types of population: True believers, who accept the ideology...dissidents, who take risks to speak publicly; and double thinkers, who have doubts or disagreements about the official ideology but are afraid to express them publicly."
In conclusion said Sharansky, the level,
"....of dissidence is always a function of how tough the regime is." (The Power of Freedom, published in The American Enterprise, Apr/May 2005, pp. 38-39)
Measured by Sharanskys' town-square test we can see that America and the West are quickly descending into a fear-based madhouse where dissent against abortion, evolution, any or all of the 'gay' agenda, decadence festivals, illegal immigration, the sexualization of our children, the imposition of shariah, and socialistic 'healthcare' brings immediate demonization. You may lose your job. In America it can even bring the terroristic force of the IRS against you.
In an address to the 10th Annual Freedom 21 Conference (10/16/09) Tom DeWeese tried to warn Americans that,
"....we are witnessing an all-out drive to impose thought control that seeks to ban the ability — the right — to think or speak for one's self. Thinking is becoming a crime." (Globally Acceptable Truth and the Crime of Thinking, Tom DeWeese)
But a morally depraved, willfully ignorant people will not listen. Caught up as they are in gratification of 'self' they do not care to hear things that disturb them, that make them feel 'bad' or guilty.
But when people are universally ignorant and debauched said founding father Samuel Adams:
"....they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."
As they sink under the weight of their own ignorance and depravity, freedom of speech will be taken away from them, and when that occurs,
"...then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." George Washington
