“Fear is the State’s psychological weapon of choice to frighten citizens into sacrificing their basic freedoms and rule-of-law protections in exchange for the security promised by their all-powerful government.” ― Philip G. Zimbardo

Mount Rushmore has been given a new facelift and pays public tribute to those enlightened individuals ( Trump, Putin, Kim Jung Un and o course Steve Bannon) who have made themselves prominent in the first 100 days of President Donald Trumps presidency.
