Internment camps for political dissidents is nothing new for America. The US Government locked up Japanese Americans within days of Pearl Harbor. How did they know where to find the Japanese? In the US Census promoted by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. How did all that data get gathered? IBM and the Hollerith punch card machine. Hollerith was concurrently in and out of the Oval Office, dealing with the Nazis and with the Japanese. The USHM removed the Hollerith punch card machine from their permanent display after MD author Edwin Black outed the machines role in the Holocaust. Mandate in the Holocaust Museum, then became to remove all Branded/corporate labeled items. The Nazis determined the price of a human life was NOT worth the cost of a single card.

Adressing this quote, “Internment camps for political dissidents in the U.S. aren’t a conspiracy theory. The Department of Defense document entitled “INTERNMENT AND RESETTLEMENT OPERATIONS” or FM 3-39.40 proves this beyond a shadow of a doubt,” know that we cannot put the dragon back in the bottle. The Internet is us. We used to give up private unpublished numbers when filling out promotion cards to win cars in the shopping mall. Now, everything we are is out there and not ours- unless our legislators recognize their role in meeting with Technological (now) Giants in their office Grip & Greets and at hearings.

If America did not anticipate this step on Roosevelt’s footpath, then shame on historians who failed to read the writings from 60 plus years back… History repeats itself. A simple enough lesson to remember.
