Wow, after reading that I think i’ll need a moment……. There. My favourite comment from that article was this

“I swear right now to everyone here that as soon as it is possible for me, i am going to get my own GPS devices, sneak around to all the police stations in the┬ávicinity, and track them so i know exactly where they’re hiding out, and what they are up to.”

I thought that was halirous. To put this in perspective though, if you don’t do anything wrong they won’t track you. Why would I be so special to be tracked? Why would I or you be so lucky? We aren’t and won’t be. Nonethless, we can’t use that logic to allow a totaliarian state. The fact that there isn’t a bigger deal being made out of this is beyond me. I would expect to hear this everywhere but, I simply don’t.

We can see the parralels drawn towards the famous book 1984 by Geogre Orwell. Once again we can see the United States has evolved in values due to the fact that this would have been considered a very communist act 50 some odd years ago. Interesting to see the change from the worst thing you can be is red, to using some of the values they embody.
