Natalie I appreciated your in depth analysis of both Orwell's masterpiece, 1984, as well as our current situation regarding privacy in our country. It is interesting to me that
the machinery of the government apparatus doesn't realize itself to be intrusive beyond its rights I just noticed that I even speak of the government as a machine. It, and the people who comprise it, see the intrusions as a means to achieving greater security. Our government, however, is ostensibly governed by "the people. " This makes the issue even more problematic given all the diversity and difference in our society. It was probably easier
early on in our country's history because most people shared a common set of general values, eg being married before living together,not having children out of wedlock, serving in the military, and so on. There are so many moving parts to our system now, it's hard to keep track of them all. Plus, we move with such rapidity from one issue to the next that it seems nothing really gets resolved, it's just on we go to the next crisis. Geo political speaker, Larry McKewin would say the government likes it that way because it keeps us arguing with each other rather than keeping our government officials accountable. Thanks again for all the food for thought and for all the hard work you obviously put into this article. I also appreciated your objectivity.
