I Know quite a bit about the STASI The East German Ministry of State Security that basically 1 out of 7 "Osters" spied on their neighbors, some willingly, most unwillingly because they got scarfed up in other "security" dragnets and were forced to spy on their neighbors or go to the East German Version of a "Gulag" or you would just "Vanish". The KGB were not as efficient as the East Germans were in setting up a police state, I guess something was said for Teutonic efficiency. But Apparently there is a movement out there for people to start "snitching" on their neighbors, I am sure that there will be a central number they can call for extra EBT credits or help in paying down their student loan debt for snitching on their neighbors especially if it bears fruit. I can see what this will do to the National Trust, you won't know if your kids will squeal on you or if your niece, nephew , your kids who has been indoctrinated by that university that now believes that all conservatives are "Evil" and must be purged and their belongings seized for redistributions for "Reparation's" or something along that line. You think I am bullshitting? I remember in the 1930's that the Red Pioneers and the Little Octobrist would spy on their parents and the kids would report to the local commisar if the parents had any religious items in the house or anything relating to the Rominov's so the parents could be denounced in front of the Kolkhoz and the items would be smashed and the parents would have to apologize to the community for betrayal of the new communist ideals and the kids would stand proud watching their parents being humiliated because to the children were already being taught, that the state was mother, the state was father and the state was all powerful. This is the endgame for the Modern leftist if they get their way. Unfortunately for them, a lot of us know our history but unfortunately there isn't as many as before and the history that I know isn't being taught anymore. This stuff I have taught on my own as my background on the Soviet Union to know how they fight and how they think. That was how I was an effective analyst for my job. I would go farther into the books and the knowledge than was normal for my rank. The Running joke was to really understand the culture was to understand Shakespeare in Russian. I still speak German after all these years and I still know some Russian, and I play hell with the phone scammers ;) You gotta amuse yourself somehow.
I saw this on Breitbart and it gave me the chills of my time in Germany when I was attached to Berlin and I saw how the Stasi played in the 1980's and thinking that this was coming to the United States.
