Don McAlvany: "George Orwell's 1984 has arrived in the U.S.S.A. Just as in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and in Russia from 1917 to 1990, any government agent or agency in America today can confiscate or seize almost any property from any American and there is very little the citizen can do to protect himself. We are witnessing the death of property rights in America - human rights and all other freedoms will follow.
These seizures are legalized theft by those who are supposed to be upholding the law, and give you a hint at the mindset of government agents, bureaucrats, and the police today. Justice is out - plunder is in! A growing number of police and government officials no longer necessarily represent justice and protection, but are being corrupted with their new loot; and everyone is beginning to be suspicious of everyone else, and especially of the police and government officials - a growing number of whom are beginning to look and act more like their Gestapo and KGB counterparts every day. Welcome to the U.S.S.A. - a branch of the New World Order!"
