"Insider Threat!" As if things weren't repressive enough, now it turns out, Federal employees have been instructed to act as Professional Judases against their fellow workers. Social Security staff, for instance, are urged to report to their superiors if their colleagues are reading dangerous material like "The Onion" on their lunch hour. Gawd help anyone in the Federal bureaucracy who burned his toast that morning or argued with her husband - their irritability may be considered "suspicious." When Fascism came to America, we were apparently a bit distracted. I know I love my "Perry Mason;" it comes on every night at 10:30. But I regrettably digress - isn't "Insider Threat" just the sort of treacherous, back-stabbing, paranoid behavior that so disgusted the American Public, it ended up bringing down the notorious, red-baiting Senator Joe McCarthy in 1954? What's next, mandatory swearing to "Loyalty Oaths" of the type that President Harry Truman signed into law on March 21, 1947?
"...With Liberty and Justice for All."
