The Reagan Administration and Dissent
Not a conspiracy, but a threat to Constitutional rights
Note: The author believes that widespread civil unrest could theoretically
be used to justify implementation of some or all of the powers described
in this article, but cautions that these laws only pose a potential abuse
of power, and that it would take what the general public could be convinced
was a serious national emergency for the President to have the political
support to actually implement the most Draconian of these laws.
