A Nation of Snitches | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

A Nation of Snitches

A totalitarian state is only as strong as its informants. And the United States has a lot of them. They read our emails. They listen to, download and store our phone calls. They photograph us on street corners, on subway platforms, in stores, on highways and in public and private buildings. They track us through our electronic devices. They infiltrate our organizations. They entice and facilitate “acts of terrorism” by Muslims, radical environmentalists, activists and Black Bloc anarchists, framing these hapless dissidents and sending them off to prison for years. They have amassed detailed profiles of our habits, our tastes, our peculiar proclivities, our medical and financial records, our sexual orientations, our employment histories, our shopping habits and our criminal records. They store this information in government computers. It sits there, waiting like a time bomb, for the moment when the state decides to criminalize us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every time I see those "See something? Say something!" signs I remember back in 1994 when I did see something; the evidence of fraud in the Vincent Foster case, and did try to say something, only to have my career in Hollywood wrecked and my life threatened!
