17. One of the factors? Maybe. "Key"? Hardly.

The real "key factors" in advancing police state policies today are the increasing
ignorance of the general public coupled with the unparalleled opportunities for
unrestricted greed on the part of the (nominal) lawmakers.

Beat those drums for war, war, war based on cowardice, panic, xenophobia & stupidity.

Get those peasants to love Big Brother as the alternative would require rational thought.

When the P.A.T.R.I.O.T. act and its successors get repealed, then we might look
into whether a dying energy industry is managing to overpower the informed will
of intelligent people but, at the moment, you have neither enough "informed will"
nor "intelligent people" capable of making a difference. And the nuclear industry
is such an insignificant player in the process of maintaining your ignorance that
it is pathetically comical to see you ignoring the real "elephant in the room".
