@LibertyLion The government HAS been watching our "every move" forever, as much as they can given the available technology of the times. Where is this absolute governmental control everyone seems so worried about?
@BigFish having an ultimate, all-knowing, superior govt makes me extremely uneasy. the biggest threat to a democracy is the govt itself... so if nothing can stop it, then we are no longer a democracy, merely a soft tyranny.
@LibertyLion I'll agree that the government tracking everything is a threat to our system of government, but IMO it's unrealistic to think that America with it's progressive nature and relatively informed citizenry could ever be tyrannized directly.
@BigFish I hope you're using the term "relatively informed citizenry" very losely... because that's precisely the problem. sheep can be herded and stampeded in whichever way a powerful public speaker feels... i.e. American politics.
