Big Brother Is Here

"There will be a surveillance camera on every street corner." ~ Chicago Mayor Daley (Story here.)

And . . .

"The system would require all cars and trucks be equipped with global satellite positioning technology, a transponder, a clock and other equipment to record how many miles a vehicle was driven, whether it was driven on highways or secondary roads, and even whether it was driven during peak traffic periods or off-peak hours." (Story here.)

Do you trust Big Brother? Well, do you? Have you ever known the government to lie? Have you ever known the government to misuse information? George Orwell was a prophet.

And so was Lord Acton: "Liberty has not subsisted outside of Christianity." ~ Lord Acton
