The police state feedback loop

The US police state is in a runaway feedback loop.

As the US police state gets bigger, more intrusive, and more visible, more people will decide that they must fight it, oppose it, or defy it, which will give The State just the excuse it wants to make the US police state get bigger, nastier, more intrusive, and more brutal in response. Which will cause more people to wake up to the reality that good people don't let police states survive unopposed, which will cause more authoritarians to.... well, you see the problem.
