Now is later.
The latest incarnation of the NDAA authorizes, in direct contradiction to the U.S. Constitution, the arbitrary detainment of American citizens, codifying into law unconstitutional precedent initiated a decade ago by the Bush administration. Passage of this NDAA follows quickly on the heals of nationwide “Occupy” protest crackdowns.
If anything, the widespread phenomenon of OWS protests awakened a large part of the country to Washington’s infestation of corrupt global corporatist influence. OWS protesters made no demands, instead opting to peacefully wait out the establishment. I suppose OWS was waiting for justice. Many stood up to mace, batons, and brutality in expectation of a response; some kind of answer.
And the answer received, is the NDAA.
