Something very ominous is taking place right before the eyes of the people of this nation; far too many Americans don’t seem to grasp what’s happening all around them; and if they actually do, it may be that they don’t have it in them to reject and resist the forces that intend to transform this society into one of subservience and submissiveness.
Since Edward Snowden blew the whistle and exposed its surveillance activities, the NSA (the National Security Agency) readily admits that it has been collecting all forms of communications of the American people, from emails to cell phone conversations as well as others. It has now also been discovered to have routinely used these same methods to collect the communications of people in other countries, many of them allies of America; even the communications of their leaders.
What we now have in America is a government that has these characteristics: it is omnipresent meaning that it is “present everywhere at the same time.” It is omniscient, or, “it has complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things.” And lastly, as we well know, it is omnipotent: “it possesses “unlimited and unrestrained authority and power.”
Do the people of America even care that their privacy is being violated each and every day; that their communications of all forms are being monitored closely by the NSA? On the surface that might be the conclusion because their reaction to this invasion of privacy has been a deafening silence. But it’s more than likely that they are well aware of exactly how their Constitutional right of privacy is being violated and they just don’t have it in them to resist and demand that these actions be terminated.
One might describe the mass of Americans as greatly resembling the “proles” that existed in the era of “1984”, aka the Orwellian age. The proles constituted 85% of the population of Oceania, they were the working class. Their functions were simple: to work and raise children. About the only things they concerned themselves with were diversions such as family get-togethers, friends and neighbors, playing the lottery, drinking, and watching TV to make them forget about their meaningless jobs.
The proles in Oceania were not subjected to intimate government surveillance because the government considered them to be useless people who would never question or challenge the government in any way. But in the America of today everyone is under surveillance because, quite obviously, this government doesn’t trust anyone; everyone is suspect and needs to have their communications monitored. So the America of today can be in many ways considered as 1984 on steroids.
We have a president, Barack Obama, who has strongly supported and defended the policies and actions of this NSA spying agency and sees absolutely nothing wrong with how it is invading the privacy of Americans. This president, a Constitutional “scholar” no less apparently doesn’t see this as a violation of the U.S. Constitution’s 4th Amendment which guarantees the rights of privacy of the American people.
So while all this skullduggery and spying is going on all around us and our cell phones, emails, and other communications are routinely tapped and recorded for further examination, what is the response from the mass of the American people? Are they incensed, are they in a state of rage and outrage because of this gross intrusion into their privacy?
Apparently not; there has been little to no response or reaction, just the usual silence that permeates this society. Many Americans don’t even have the slightest inkling of what is going on; they are, like the 1984 proles, busy with their own lives, largely unconcerned with what they government is doing. Others say that they have nothing to hide and, therefore, the government can do whatever it wishes with intercepting their communications.
Or they may well be a throw back to the people in Germany who, in their hearts, knew exactly what was going on in the prelude to World War II and just looked the other way when The National Socialist German Workers’ Party established control over the nation and the people no longer had any rights and certainly no privacy. And we all know what happened next.
