Well, I can't agree with that last statement, "And by “perfect us” I mean turn us into subservient robots eager to heed their commands." You misjudge the level of evil in these people. They want us to resist so they have the pleasure of forcing us to give in to their superior force. That is why they need to have all the arms. Hey, isn't it illegal anymore to have armed Federal troops. It used to be. The Army can't legally shoot us. The FBI could and did but no one else. What happened? Why do we have 17 armed Fed troops? Even Meadow Muffins go armed and can shoot you if you want to use the nation's forest for a picnic.
