[Erdogan in Turkey, just the latest example happening in post-liberal ‘democracies’ all over the world at least since 9/11 and the ‘war on terror’. Readers can fill in the specific details in their countries. Old as the hills, the state protection racket. Works like a charm unless enough people jump up and down, dissent and resist.]

How to Set Up a Police State in Four Easy Steps

1. Use any violent attacks on public institutions as pretexts for increasing the powers of your executive and decreasing the powers and freedoms of civil society, the legislative, the judiciary.

2. Designate an internal and/or external Enemy and demonise that Enemy.

3. Pour fuel on the flames: increase the likelihood of attacks by the Designated Enemy by violently repressing and attacking them, waging all-out war on them.

4. Cultivate a fear and siege mentality (stay ‘alert and alarmed’, watch for the ‘unnormal’) in your populace so that they accept all limitations on their freedoms for the sake of ‘security’.
