Programs that are being instituted in your village, town, city, county etc. right now, are programs that carry the stench of the future, and the past.
Asset Based Community Development (ABCD)
Community Oriented Policing (COPS)
Know Your Neighbor
These programs are sponsored by your local government and are designed to find out everything possible about you. Why? Because you're being assessed and mapped. Your skills are being put on a map, searchable through GIS (global information system), so that you can 'contribute' to the well being of the community. Your assets---stored food, water, tools, weapons---are being recorded. Click on this paragraph to see the questionnaire.
These programs are being touted as something YOU want, that YOU asked for---at a visioning meeting, perhaps, where you were Delphi'd. They can't do this without your assistance...and your neighbor's, if you don't cooperate. What they don't tell you is that they also record your limitations, your handicaps, your resistance, your personal behavior, your private life, your habits. The skill-sharing is the candy-coating.
Now read this (from Wikipedia):
In Nazi Germany, a blocklieder (block warden) was the lowest official of the Nazi Party, responsible for the political supervision of a neighborhood or city block, and formed the link between the Nazis and the general population. He was charged with planning, spreading propaganda, and developing an acceptance to the policies of the Nazi party among the typically 40 to 60 households in his area. It was also the duty of the blocklieder to spy on the population and report any anti-Nazi activities to the local Gestapo office. This allowed for a Nazi terror state and was helped by keeping files on each household.
