Homeland Sec – An Important Historical Record, Back Again.

With HomelandSec.org, the Century Project was way ahead of its time in thinking about preparedness for a man made disaster such as 911. This project was instigated right after 911 to help to inform the public and to generate policy making ideas to deal with the problem of domestic terrorism. As such it is a valuable historical resource, and it well worth the effort to recover this record. Look for it here soon. We will also add a blog to keep up this discussion as it relates to policy and articles of note as they relate to preventing terrorism. While waiting, you can get in touch.

  1. Welcome back!

    One interpretation of the Century Project’s goals is to make the whole concept of “Homeland Security” palatable as it’s rammed down Our throats by colluding Democrats and Republicans during the lingering shock and awe of 9/11, before We The People realize or discuss the many serious downsides of reducing “the land of the free and the home of the brave” into “The Homeland”, for which We all will fearfully and gratefully surrender Our precious, hard-won-and-died-for, individual rights and freedoms without complaint. (The so-called patriot act was a constitutional abomination…!)

    “A republic, if you can keep it.”
    – Ben Franklin

    “Those who sacrifice essential liberties for the phantom of security shall have, and deserve, neither.”
    – Ben Franklin

    So, you know how the phrase “protecting and defending the Homeland” warms the cockles of our hearts? Do you suppose the phrase “protecting and defending the Fatherland” had any different effect on Hitler’s followers? (Hitler Made Germany Great Again!)

    Ergo, “Homeland” is a gender-neutral term for Fatherland brand marketing.

    Job 1 of 9/11 was enemy creation.
    Job 2 of 9/11 was Homeland creation.

    Bigots believe in their beliefs more than in the evidence which disproves them.

    Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it…
