Big Bro

Monday, September 01, 2008

The video "Camera Shy Big Brother" from the UK is a fascinating look at misguided authoritarian control.

In spite of the fact that no laws are being broken, a demand is made by those in power to stop (fill in the blank). If the law-abiding citizen stands ground by continuing whatever legal behavior the authoritarian(s) dislike, intimidation goes to the next level which may be a hand on the person or the person's belongings or a request for their name or ID.

By the way, although I use the adjective "fascinating", I also presume that all sane and responsible adults will also find the tactics used in this video as abusive, repulsive, disturbing, and frightening. These abuses of power are not isolated to the UK. They are not singular random events. They are, in fact, a trend and you know, if only in your darkest nightmares, where this trend will lead.

Watch Those Lips

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

A video (below) from The Young Turks features a clip from McCain saying "nations don't invade other nations in the 21st century."

It struck me that McCain has this uncanny ability to speak without moving his lips. I recalled this classic joke:
Q - How can you tell if a politician is lying?
A - His lips are moving.

So I ask you: If the lips don't move, is it still a lie?
