As an old cop, I have actually witnessed George Orwell's "1984" come of age. When a representative had actually gotten some especially juicy information on a target, I recall an incident in 1970. A chill increased my back as he proudly and boldly announced "big sibling is here" as he strutted down a corridor laughing.
I thought, 'boy individuals simply have no idea'. Reality was, little did any of us understand. Many of us did not understand when Martin Luther King, Jr was under monitoring for political reasons nor when Brit Hume of Fox Information Network was being shadowed for political gain.
Huge Brother thinks of us in genuine simple terms as pigs. Let the Tennessee Mountain Guy inform you the best ways to catch wild hogs. You find a path where they take a trip or a place where they feed. Second you grow some food there daily. At first the hogs will prevent the area because of the human aroma and cost-free food. After all they are bred to create for themselves, and smart enough to be afraid people.
Now you develop a stretch of fence at a 90 degree angle appended to the. Offer the hogs a couple of days to end up being acclimated and develop an additional stretch of the fence.
This is done until there is only a small opening for the pigs to obtain in and out and they will. Lastly on a pre-selected date close the gate and you have an adequate wild ham, shoulder, sausage, pork, and bacon chops to feed your family and all your pals for awhile.
Long prior to Head of state Lyndon B. Johnson's Great Society there were other men with comparable dreams stoking the feed lots, unsafe men like Mussolini, Marx, Hitler, and Stalin. There are similarly hazardous men today like Bin Laden and Ahmadinejad operating under the guise of fundamentalist religious beliefs . Someone has stated we should discover from history or we are condemned to repeat it. The concern ends up being have we discovered.
Have we discovered anything when we quietly sustain our own government stripping away our individual rights and civil liberties in the name of nationwide protection while the highest court in the land stands idly by? Have we any privacy when Google can photograph us virtually at will and declare it is their right to do so? When our cellular phone business understands where we are within a square mile approximately today? When the black box in our car records where our vehicle has been and when and even more?
Do you feel secure in your house when your ISP monitors your e-mail and your surfing, and Microsoft clandestinely enters your computer system and does who knows exactly what? When the satellite positioning device in your hand, in your vehicle or in your watercraft can and will inform anyone where you are at given anytime? When web traffic video cameras and even freeway toll centers record where you are, when, and what you are doing? Such information is being subpoenaed and used in civil court today.
Exactly how about when you go into a lounge, casino, mall, huge office or residential building, shop or church and understand you are being monitored by individuals watching your every move on hidden cameras. Those cameras are tape-recording exactly what they see ... you and me. When you walk down the road or choose a walk in the park do you ever consider your every action is being recorded by video cameras in police automobiles, mobile phone, and exclusive businesses and homes as well as the police department where staff monitors those cams 24/7/365?
Do you really think that is bad? Consider the inadequate souls who ended up being trapped in the pig pen and forgot ways to look after themselves. All too frequently those forever uneducated people caught in poverty in the general public housing projects skeezing and pleasing skeezers while chasing their next fix understand only ways to take what they desire at the point of a weapon. When the nanny state can not or will not offer, specifically.
Now that you are sufficiently paranoid about Huge Brother maybe it is time to seriously review what kind of world and nation we desire to live in tomorrow, and how we get there from a land adrift up until now away.
