Big Brother is Protecting Us

They are watching us, listening to us, scanning us, face-recognitioning us, controlling our web behavior, our telephone calls, credit card purchases and the books we borrow.

For our protection!

That’s the minor part. The major part is that we watch them; the shows, films and broadcasts that they want us to watch. The books, magazines, newspapers and ads—don’t forget the ads—that they want us to see. We’re not supposed to ask the obvious question.

Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t we be watching them? They are our representatives. What are they doing and who are they doing it with? How come they have so many secrets from us, the public, be we can’t have any privacy from them? Who is giving them bribes… (whoops, delete, I mean) donations? How come we keep getting poorer and they keep getting richer … protecting us.

They can’t see the depths of our hearts or the vastness of our souls, but they have their suspicions. That’s why they are watching us. For our protection.
