Big Brother is here … watching you
More than 40 old, this cartoon presaged the arrival of surveillance society. (Cartoonist - Ron Cobb; year of publication - 1968).
Over the last 25 years, Governments have spent huge amounts of money to intrude and monitor its population.
Millions of CCTV cameras monitor people all over the world.
Facial recognition software can ‘see-through’ modifications like spectacles, beards, wigs, changes in hairstyle, etc.
Organizations like Google monitor every click on your computer – which is available to any determined bureaucrat.If not easily, with some difficulty.
After all this State intrusion …
Has crime reduced? Has terror abated? Has safety increased?
