ONE NATION UNDER SURVEILLANCE!
'Big Brother is watching' in ways Orwell never dreamed



surveilanceEverywhere you look, there it is again ' staring you in the face.

The four-way traffic cameras at virtually every intersection. Police secretly attaching GPS tracking devices to citizens' automobiles. Invasive TSA pat-downs and nude X-ray scannings ' after first being required to raise your hands as though you were being arrested. Internet sites that track your online activities so thoroughly they almost seem to know what you're thinking.
