    1984

    As George Orwell portrayed in his book, do you think theres is still a "BIG Brother" out there watching and monitoring socety.

    Beside da fact that computer usage is monitored, and phones can be tracked and tapped into. and im not talking about the police, do you think that there is an ever-present, all-seeing Big Brother lurking?

    yea there is a big brother watching us, their name is the CIA. Post september 11th Bush passed the USA Patriot act. This allows people mirroring your actions on the web, seeing everything you type in and where the cursor is moving at what time, to roving phone taps, which allow them to listen to any conversation, anywhere at anytime with out a warrant. It changed alot of stuff and most people are un aware. They can basically get away with anything if their "suspect" you are a terrorist

    dont you think that if they really wanted bin laden they would have found him already? and not only that, if they found him what would be bush's reason for not lowering the gas prices...being as though bush co owns most of the us oil refineries

    Some apartment buildings in NYC now use cards instead of keys to monitor when tenant come and go... (saw it on the news yesterday)

    if you look up at a lot of street lights now (especially in times square) there are cameras everywhere

    so if the gov/big brother is not watching us what's all of this for?

    Yea....only in 2006 they go by the name of "The Bush Administration." In the book, the people sont know if they're at war with Oceania or East Asia (if my memory is correct), but in 2006 We aren't sure who we're at war with. One upon a time it was Afghanistan then we miraculously end up in Iraq. In 1984 the people are oppressed by fear---now all you hear is "War on Terror." Fear left and right. Coincidence maybe?
