In the US we are seeing the following system being put in place. The entire country is divided into two camps. The first is the larger one where people are persecuted and punished constantly by the socially close criminals who are allowed to run loose. This will keep the victims constantly fearful and easy to control.
The second one will be protected from the street crime but will be kept completely subservient and compliant through the terror of being cancelled for ideological crimes and ending up in the crime-ravaged poor side of town.
See? It helps to know about other places and times.
