Reasons to be paranoid (Part Three)

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” — Benjamin Franklin, 1759 Historical Review of Pennsylvania

The British people are being kept in an artificial, perpetual state of alarm , so that they will acquiesce to the erosion of their civil liberties. The systems that are being put in place to enable this include, but are not limited to:-

The utter bovine stupidity of the British public and the capacity of the government to lie and deceive will ensure that all these (and more) schemes go ahead.

The labour party has abandoned cradle-to-the grave socialism and is replacing it with cradle-to-the-grave surveillance and control, that regimes like the stasi in East Germany could only have dreamed about, and I haven’t even mentioned remote activation of the microphone in mobile phones and computers.

Functional political resistance is futile, the only rational method of avoiding ensnarement in this web is to opt out of existence altogether.
