You have known this for some time, but here it is again: They want to know who you are, what you have – H.L.

It’s all about control of weapons, food, transportation, et cetera. . . I’m still getting questionnaires from the Dept. of Agriculture over property that I sold nearly 15 years ago. They want to know how I use the property and what it produces. I routinely throw the notices away and refuse the telephone calls. So far, they have threatened me with arrest and jail, both through the mail and over the phone but no warrants have been issued yet.

The Factory That Made Guns, by Dalia Mae Lachlan

“In the heart of a peaceful valley, surrounded by dairy farms and peach orchards, was a little factory that made farm implements. Then one day Mr Reedy Power gathered the workers. ‘This little factory is going to start making guns’ he laughed. The peach orchards were cut down and the cows were sent off to another valley far away, and the factory started making guns and tanks. But when they stopped selling, Mr Reedy Power decided that a war was needed so that he could keep his factory busy.”
