8. History has already shown
the depths to which humanity is capable of sinking. Americans, contrary to popular belief, are a part of humanity and just as capable of any other people of sinking to those depths.

I believe that there is nothing that this regime and various groups of RW extremists, such as the theocrats and the neocons, would be incapable of.

I think that the American people by and large are so complacent that mostly they would just sit back and take it. There are many who are so viscous and hate filled that they would eagerly partake in it as well.

I don't know that our country actually will sink to those depths, but it absolutely won't surprise me if we do.
