Orwellian Dreams Coming True
George Orwell had dreams of Checkpoints, interrogations, strip-searches, training the people to spy on each other, guilty until proven innocent. Tele-screens located in public places, playing a video message encouraging People to spy on each other and report “suspicious activity” to law enforcement. Are his dreams coming true?
Checkpoints, interrogations, strip-searches, training the people to spy on each other, guilty until proven innocent. Tele-screens located in public places, playing a video message encouraging People to spy on each other and report “suspicious activity” to law enforcement. It is a George Orwell fantasy come true. This type of totalitarian Society is what made 1940’s Nazi Germany possible. This results in a total takeover of society. Encouraging people to become informants for the government against their neighbors is big step towards becoming a militarized police state. It creates a climate of fear and mistrust of one another.
What kind of Government would engage in this type of Unbelievable behavior ? Well let’s take a look back at Nazi Germany. The Government not only encouraged citizens to spy on each other but in some cases provided rewards for it. We all know that because of this betrayal of citizen against citizen a reign of terror swept across Europe. Millions were slaughtered at the hands of this government.
So what does this have to do with now and with America? Does this sound familiar? fingerprint scans at amusement parks, bag searches at train stations, pat downs at stadiums and concert arenas, camera surveillance on street corners and other public places, and, most recently, Invasive “enhanced Security pat downs and whole body imaging scanners in airports. But wait there is more….
Americans have increasingly been targeted for government surveillance . Treated as suspects, we have had our phone calls tapped and our letters and emails monitored by government agents.
It has been announced by Wal-mart spokesperson Dan Fogelman that the Homeland Security Department will be placing Video’s at the checkout stands encouraging shoppers to watch for suspicious behavior by others and report it to the authorities. It does not define what suspicious behavior is.
This campaign of “If You See Something, Say Something”, Is the latest attempt to encourage folks to keep an eye on each other and turn their neighbors in to authorities If they are doing or saying anything that the government may not like. Here is link to the actual video being played at Wal-mart stores throughout the nation.
This is all to familiar to those who lived through WWII. This was the same way the Nazi regime got the people to turn on each other. This is a case of ” big brother rearing it’s ugly head again. This time, hopefully, People will remember the horrific results of this kind of government intrusion and will fight back. We can no longer sit on the sidelines while our freedoms are being snatched away from us in this war on the American people By their own government. It is time to decide whether we will sucumb to the tolatarian dreams of the power hungry rabid elites that seek to dominate and control our every thought word or action, Or will the American people unite to defend our country our Constitution, our neighbors and our selves from this Deliberate attempt to destroy our freedom and bring America to it’s knee’s.
