Police State

In a book I am reading, there is a part that concerns the French Revolution. It describes neighbors informing on neighbors and the consequences for the neighbor. It brings to mind the conditions the exist here at the present time. People who inform on those not wearing masks, not social distancing, or not standing on the right spot or in the right line in supermarkets. I've heard of women walking around stores to see if they can confront someone and feeling so righteous. Easy to see how life happened in East Germany or other Communist states. Just this far away from a police state and we would then wonder how it was possible.
