This was another comment of mine in relation to this article in the Guardian UK.
The article relates to how easily we all give our private information away without a thought for what happens to it in the future. There is a horizon and we are heading towards it, the reckoning day when our privacy will be used possibly against us, unlike now where we don’t feel, notice or care, I have a feeling we will one day. At bottom an individuals private information can become of use politically, is it a matter of time?
You may feel George Orwells 1984 has come and gone and it wasn’t too bad, has it come yet?
This is my comment in the Guardian UK.
“Our current crop of politicians/security services whoever, deserve the 10,200 pounds themselves right now. They have managed to accomplish what one would think is the impossible and that is too:
1. Get a whole pile of citizens to vote for policies that are not in their own interest whatsoever and:
2. Hand over all their private, confidential (you might say classified) information willy nilly to governments and business without a care in the world.
Now that is an outstanding achievment.”
