Gender and racial discrimination, surveillance, exploitation and so forth are only effects. The real problem is – that it is possible to suppress the people by false Science or false descriptions of the world – that supports Might Is Right. Or like this. We are not genuine citizens.

Big Brother or little gnome?


From Our Own Correspondent, BBC, 26 June 2012

"... The line between state oversight and interference can be a fine one; and the same system which can provide generous benefits might also insist on similarly high levels of co-operation. Jo Fidgen is in Sweden, where a sort of 'Big Brother' is watching you, even in your own home. But she finds that even this level of supervision seems to some a way to find freedom through big government, via the Swedish welfare state – or the "People’s Home", as its taxpayers prefer to put it."
