Real Life Minority Report

27 February 2010 @ 13:54

If you recall the movie, Minority Report:

…It is set primarily in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia in the year 2054, where “Precrime”, a specialized police department, apprehends criminals based on foreknowledge provided by three psychics called “precogs”….

Leave it to a committed Leftist thug [that’s redundant] and his Bolshe toadies to put the concept into practice, as GatorDoug relates [quoting from a report in The Washington Post by Nik Steinberg]:

Ask [the Leftists] if they know about Cuba’s Dangerousness Law. Since the pinheads who praise [Castro] often are also fond of chanting “power to the people” and claim to believe in social justice, and equality, ask them if think this is just

Under Cuba’s “dangerousness” law, authorities can imprison people who have not committed a crime on the suspicion that they might commit one in the future. “Dangerous” activities include handing out copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, writing articles critical of the government and trying to start an independent union.

In this case, Castro has dispensed with psychics, instead finding it easier to rely on psychos, like himself, to provide the foreknowledge.  It’s much less messier all around because, as you know, psychics are high-maintenance, whereas psychos do what they’re told and, being a dime-a-dozen in Leftist bureaucracies, can easily be replaced if they show signs of independence.

SIDENOTE: Doug credits Val Prieto of the Babalu Blog with turning him on to this story.  Mr. Prieto and the other folks over there are some of the most courageous people I have ever encountered who are working to fight for the triumph of freedom in Cuba.  They deserve to be enshrined in the Hall Of Freedom’s Heroes.

      I would think he learned about this in college, Divine One. Perhaps, he is waiting for the 2010 Election Season to get fully underway before he humbly mentions it to you – in other words, perhaps he has placed it temporarily on holder.
