My Zen moment, a reference to Japan would have missed the topic, covers three parts of the problem.
1) Intrusion of the collective down through the level of the town, past the family and into the individual.
a. The local environmental, educational, and public order inspectors.
b. Report Daddy for not recycling, follow Mommy for misregistering,
charge the invaded home owner for grabbing a knife.
c. Canadian/Canadien Human Rights Commission investigates "intent,"
Hate Crimes laws vary punishment by victim class.
2) The real threat to our security from attacks carried out by units of the Chinese People's Liberation Army to probe, map and disrupt American network based or reliant systems. These are potentially far more devastating than were the Russian cyber attacks on Estonia and Georgia.
3) The stultifying effects of centralization choke off the flow of information needed for both rational market operations, innovation to meet changing conditions, and efficient government administration. Eventually the centralized bureaucratic authoritarian or totalitarian model will face systemic failure.
China has set the template in all three areas and the West is following in their footsteps. Mao as a role model indeed. Economy of analysis on my part. The situations methodology, threats and outcome risks are summed up in one word, China.
