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.
