Exactly. I came across this “Upon such approval, the Secretary of the resource department that made the finding may use the authority of section 101(a) of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071(a), to control the general distribution of any material (including applicable services) in the civilian market.” Scary. Sounds like Germany during WWII.
Im reminded of the story where you capture wild animals by building one fence. When they grow acustomed to it, you build the second. Then the third. When the fourth wall is built,, they are trapped.
This sure looks like a fence to me. Our government is building prison walls.
