The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

Just-Another-Giant-Step-Towards-Fascism Watch

Note that this post could also be entitled “If –Americans-Believe-This, The-Terrorists-Have-Won Watch”

Donald M. Kerr, the Deputy Director of National Intelligence, has opined that it is time for Americans to change their definition of privacy. Mr. Kerr claims that privacy can no longer mean anonymity. Instead, it should mean that the government and businesses have access to your private communications and financial information but that they should properly safeguard it.

Holy shit, people! What Mr. Kerr is proposing IS 1984. It IS The Handmaid’s Tale. It IS A Brave New World. It IS Fahrenheit 451. It IS a nightmare of obscene proportions!

Mr. Kerr is advocating that the benevolent US government see all and know all but somehow not act on what it knows or sees unless it deems your thoughts or actions to be inappropriate. This is a giant step towards fascism and a giant step towards a one-party system. After all, how could a minority party function if the majority party had all relevant information about its opponents?

For example, imagine if the government, controlled by the Democratic party, KNEW which Republicans were cheating on their wives, KNEW which Republicans were secretly gay, KNEW which Republicans are pedophiles… and had the phone calls, the emails, the letters, the photos, and the video to prove it. If that were the case, a LOT of Republicans would be exposed as cheaters, liars, and criminals. I think it would be safe to say that the Republican party wouldn’t last more than a few months.

EVERYONE has something to hide. Something you wouldn’t want your neighbors to know. Something you wouldn’t want your friends to know. Something you wouldn't want your employer to know. And if the government has that information and can use it against you, suddenly, you love the government; you love Big Brother.

The Boosh Administration is more than stupid and corrupt. More than incompetent and vile. The Boosh Administration is evil, and unless we are very careful, the evil will have us all.

-John Locke
