How I would enslave a nation...
1) Control the mass media - get 6 affliated companies to own 90% of the airwaves. What they say is deemed true automatically.
2) Slowly deterioriate their economy by spending. This is so the population has less money for things like weapons or food supplies
3) Create fear (through media and coordinated events) to reinforce more spending (on military and more legislative laws). Make enough laws and we can all be criminals!!!
4) Gun control (for those who still manage to stock up on arms despite the economic depression)
And then what? Well in my eyes very strict gun control is the last step. Checkmate. Today Piers Morgan who usually its alittle tolerant of other people opinions freaked out on the Gun Owners of America guy. As soon as you bring up gun control, these guys get all in your face!!! Why such strong emotional reactions?
Programming in my opinion
By the way if there is a 5) it would be TAX the hell out of the people. Thats a good final blow
