The componants of a police state are now in place. Surveilance, trial without jury, and 'emergency' police powers in the state aparatus. Paranoia, scapegoating and patriotism in the ideological sphere.

As with Naziism and MaCarthyism, the great majority of the population display no resistance at all, or even conciousness of what is occuring.

It is not too late to reverse the tide, and this time the left is not complacent, but it may be too weak.

    Orwell should have worked for the Michellin guide and burned '1984', then perhaps the world would be a happier place... Or not... erm 'scuse the drivel.
