Yes, and Zappa also predicted, in the liner notes to his double-album "Joe's Garage," a future state of "total criminalization," in which every single average citizen would be forced by increasingly crazy and complex laws to be a criminal, subject to arrest an incarceration at will by the government. This is clearly another deliberate step in that direction.
