George Orwell hit it right on the nosey. Big bro’ is watching you and he wants to make sure you are “safe” and “secure” so he will do all of the thinking for you. That nasty internet, with all of those unregulated “right wing fanatics” who are spreading dangerous misinformation about bro’s attempt to protect you, from yourself of course, must be tightly controlled.
Heaven knows what kind of cyber emergency will plunge us into complete chaos. Of course with the group in charge now chaos seems to be their operating system du jour. They spend months coming up with a 1,000 page bill no one, even bro’, has read. They
anyone who even suggests an alternative course. Last but not least in an attempt to force the issue they “go to the people” who by large margins castigate and reject their “rescue plan” then announce that they have the votes to do it anyway but even if they don’t they’ll finagle a way to pass it no matter what.
This is representative government? This is what we fought and some of us died for? To have someone tell us what to do in our homes, businesses, on our computers? How long before alternative views become “dangerous”? How long before free speech is only for the elites, the educated, the powerful?
Probably next Tuesday.
