WASHINGTON (PNN) - May 2, 2017 - If you stay inside the Fascist Police States of Amerika you will remain free, safe, and prosperous. If you even so much as step foot outside of the Fascist Police States of Amerika, you will probably be murdered, if not taken. At least that is what the Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division would have you believe.
Extremists are on the loose in Europe, where they have demonstrated their ability to carry out various attacks using firearms, explosives, vehicles, and blades. Because of this, the Fascist Police States of Amerika has issued a travel alert for Europe.
Be afraid. If you are in a tourist location, with a crowd, or on public transport in Europe, you should probably assume everyone is a terrorist. It could happen at any time. Better to be safe and keep your clubbing to Florida.
But don’t worry; here are some steps you can take. Follow our orders, and the government and media will keep you safe.
Review security information from local officials, who are responsible for the safety and security of all visitors to their host country. FPSA citizens should also:
- Follow the instructions of local authorities. Monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities.
- Be prepared for additional security screening and unexpected disruptions.
- Stay in touch with your family members and ensure they know how to reach you in the event of an emergency.
- Have an emergency plan of action ready.
- Register in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
Always trust in the local government. Always stay tethered to media - it could save your life. Be prepared to have your rights violated in the name of security.
Finally, you can even enroll yourself to make sure the FPSA authorities know your travel plans.
Oh, and by the way, there is no government warning against visiting Chicago, which had 762 total murders in 2016. That’s about 200 more murders than England and Wales have had in any given year since 2011. Chicago is home to fewer than 3 million people, while the combined population of England and Wales is 56 million.
Okay, yes, there are real threats out there; and yes, you should do proper research before visiting places. Awareness of your surroundings is always a good idea, as is avoiding certain places altogether.
But this alert is for all of Europe. Really? All of Europe is dangerous enough to elicit a warning from the Amerikan Gestapo Department of State division?
But no warnings against visiting places inside the FPSA like Chicago.
TripAdvisor probably has more useful and specific information on the risks of traveling to various locations.
For a long time, this attitude that Amerika is basically safe to travel through, and outside of Amerika is severely lacking in rule of law, cleanliness, and general safety was ingrained in me. To be sure, you can find places outside the FPSA that are very dangerous and not worth the trip; and you can find many places inside the FPSA that rival the foreign war zones.
But since I have started traveling abroad I have been to cities that feel much safer than the typical FPSA city.
What that travel warning really reminds me of is how the government portrays the world outside of the Fascist Police States of Amerika in my novella, Flight Grounded.
From a review:
“As I read this book, I couldn’t help but try to pinpoint its genre by comparing it with other works. It had that “dystopian short story” feel to it like Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron or 2BR02B, it had the constant action of any crime thriller, it had the “trapped” feeling from every non-fiction I’ve read on North Korea, and it had that “can this actually be the truth” feel from any good conspiracy theory. What I liked most about this book is how, given an open mind, the conspiracies presented in this book could actually be real and no one would be the wiser.”
Basically, the “reality” presented by the FPSA government and its media affiliates is not an accurate depiction of the outside world. On the very surface, the government just seems paranoid. But the more information that it controls that we rely on to form our worldviews, the more it could be manipulating the perception about what actually goes on inside and outside the Fascist Police States of Amerika.
