Big Brother is watching you.

One way or another, the Home office and Theresa May wants police surveillance off everyones web and mobile records and the banning of unpleasant opinions. The anti-terrorism and security bill will oblige internet service  providers (ISPs) to retain information linking IP ( Internet Protocol) addresses to individual uses. It will  result in the police getting more   powers to force internet firms to hand over details linked to IP addresses in order  to help identify criminal suspects online.
The fact is that the fear of terrorism and extremist activities, now  makes everyone of us a suspect. Way before the internet we  have lived with fear and suspicion it is  part of our human nature, but with the internet age  it seems it  is now time  for all of us to be treated  like children, who cannot be trusted to act  responsibly based on what we here. Facebook  itself has also started behaving like a worried nanny, it seems you cannot hang bout there under  an identity that your friends know or trust, it seems that if we do not comply , we will be silenced, and turfed out.
Extremity is a state  of mind, that cannot be erased or killed, however hard people try, it can however be pushed further underground where its danger can still be spread. Voices silenced  will only foster more division, paranoia under the orders of what I personally see as a dangerous out of control extremist organisation the Conservative Party.If this does not bother you, then carry on, you might be  comfortable that 'Big Brother' is watching you, but I ask you who is watching Big Brother. Could someone tell the government and the opposition, because they don't seem to have been kicking up much of a fuss, that the George Orwell's book 1984 was a warning not an instruction manual.
" Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human liberty. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves" - William  Pitt the Younger.
