Jello Biafra prophesized the Patriot Act

I haven’t listened to this album in a couple years, and I popped it into today. This is the first track:

Message from our sponsor
By Jello Biafra

We interrupt this program with a special bulletin…
America is now under martial law.
All constitutional rights have been suspended
stay in your homes,
do not attempt to contact loved ones,
insurance agents
or attorneys
SHUT UP!

Do not attempt to think, or depression may occur
stay in your homes
curfew is at 7 pm sharp after work
anyone caught outside the gates of their subdivision sector
will be shot!

Remain calm, do not panic.

Your neighborhood watch inspector will be around to collect urine samples in the morning
Anyone caught interfering with the collection of urine samples
will be shot!

Stay in your homes, remain calm.
The number one enemy of progress is questions.
National security is more important that individual will.
All sports broadcasts will proceed as normal.
No more than two people may gather anywhere without permission.
Use only the drugs prescribed by your boss or supervisor.
SHUT UP!
BE HAPPY!

Obey all orders without question.
the comfort you’ve demanded is now mandatory.
BE HAPPY!
At last, everything is done for you…

It’s from 1987. And yet, it doesn’t sound all that far fetched from where we are today.
