Purchasing a cup of coffee using cash instead of a credit or debit card, using Google Maps to view photos of sporting event stadiums and large cities, and installing software to protect your internet privacy on your mobile phone — these and many other mundane activities are now considered to be potential terrorist activities by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). And the agency is now distributing a new series of flyers as part of its new “Communities Against Terrorism” (CAT) program that urges shop owners and others to report such “suspicious” activity to authorities.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Since the real estate crash, the ascendancy of the “Lesser Depression” and near record unemployment, millions of Americans no longer have credit cards, bank accounts or debit cards to pay for their coffee and other inexpensive items. Are these millions of Americans to be considered potential terrorists according to the FBI because they pay cash for a cup of coffee or cheap store item? On the surface the new FBI merchant Flyer appears absurd. Consider: if one in 50 coffee shops reported a customer paying cash for a cup of coffee, an already under staffed FBI would be crushed responding to calls. The FBI Flyer provided merchants fails as a propaganda vehicle because it is absurd to think in this economy small business owners are going to report customers paying cash for inexpensive items—as potential terrorists. However looking below the surface, the FBI has done something “brilliant” here that even the East German Secret Stasi Police never thought of to develop an army of informants. It took the Stasi two decades to create an army of neighborhood and other informants to spy for the communist government. The FBI’s flyers that asks merchants and businesses to report customers paying cash for even small items like coffee, will definitely attract Americans that want to be government informants. Brilliant! the FBI won’t have to spend years like the Stasi threatening Citizens, shaking the bushes to find informants, to build a U.S. network of American informants.

    When the East Berlin Wall came down it was discovered the Stasi Police informant files if lined up—back to back—would extend 12-miles. The Stasi developed an army of several hundred thousand informants; neighbors spying on neighbors, workers reporting workers. The Stasi even had informants reporting on church members. It got to the point East Germany married couples were afraid to discuss things inside their home and would leave the house to talk. It this the direct America is headed?
