Just like George Orwell said, the surveillance state has reared its ugly head. You can’t log on your computer without having someone monitoring your work. You have to worry about strangers watching you through your webcam when your pc isn’t even on. You can’t drive down the road without having a camera take photo at every red light. The police state is strong like an ox. For most this is just a way of life. People don’t care that they are being watched. They think that only those doing bad things should mind the cameras. Why do people think this way? IF this surveillance is actually here to help us, then why aren’t murders prevented? How is it possible that anyone is even kidnapped?
Our media is the leading producer of liberals in the world. Media has instilled the belief that surveillance is good, guns are bad, and government is our daddy. Just last night I watched Obama give a 30 minute speech under the pretense as a guest on The Tonight Show. Obama discussed that Snowden was a traitor, all Republican congressman were the problems, that the economy was improving, that Hilary Clinton is a saint, I killed Bin Ladin, the NSA is here to help, and that guns are bad. Yes, the usual liberal nonsense that we read in the news on a daily basis.
At times, I find it hard to believe that even hardcore liberals buy into most of this crap. I understand they are generally less educated than right wingers (it’s true liberals. people say you are smarter in the same way they say the employment rate is going down…) Now, I’m not here to ridicule liberals or tea party members. Frankly, I don’t feel like writing that long. I am only here to point out that common sense should guide us all to realize that surveillance is bad.
Psychologically, it does irreversible harm to people living in a police state. Have you ever been in a relationship where your partner went through your phone, your belongings, etc? This is the exact same thing. A relationship without trust isn’t a relationship at all. It is just one person taking advantage of the other. Further, I would be hard pressed to find any proof that surveillance is doing one beneficial thing for our society. It certainly isn’t deterring crime. You would think that kidnapping/murder/etc would be down given all of the cameras, but that isn’t the case. The only place that crime is down is in areas where guns are legal. Crazy, huh?
All of the liberal areas that ban guns and install surveillance have a growing problem of crime and murder. The old saying, “The South will rise again,” will come calling in the near future. It won’t be in the form of racism, rather it will be protecting their constitutional rights. Call them stupid all you like. Sometimes people measure intelligence in silly ways.
I have been blessed to hangout with some very bright minds that hail from around the country and globe. I have seen 47 states and 13 countries with my own eyes. Rednecks actually have as much common sense as anyone I have met. We can sum this up by comparing an Ivy League education against a public education. Most think the ivy league education makes you smarter. In actuality, it just costs more money and affords you the ability to learn from more prominent members of society. Neither of which makes you a lick smarter than a kid taking free classes from edX or someone at a junior college in Mississippi. Frankly, college is nothing more than a ponzi scheme, but that is a conversation for another time.
Surveillance is here. It’s not going anywhere either. It has slowly started marching our country towards the long overdue civil war we are all due. Once the economy starts to hit rock bottom, (we’re still not there unfortunately) the pieces will really fall into place. I guess this is why a country needs a civil war every 100 years , to keep the government in line.
If you are worried about terrorism, then you are badly mistaken. I stand a better chance from dying on my drive home from work today than you do of witnessing a terrorist even in your entire lifetime. 95% of the terrorist attacks that occurred today were likely American drones blowing up a wedding or school bus. The South will rise again. Another 2% of our country’s rednecks will give their lives for the betterment of our country. Will anyone even notice?
- “The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what they [the government] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals.” ~ Glenn Greenwald
- “These examples and many others demonstrate an alarming trend whereby the privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence. But when viewed as a whole, there begins to emerge a society quite unlike any we have seen — a society in which government may intrude into the secret regions of man’s life at will.” ~ William O. Douglas
