    Something remindedme of this the other day.
    Max Headroom (TV series) - Wikipedia

    Tell me is this reminds you of anything:
    "In the future, an oligarchy of television networks rules the world. Even the government functions primarily as a puppet of the network executives, serving mainly to pass laws — such as banning "off" switches on televisions — that protect and consolidate the networks' power. Television technology has advanced to the point that viewers' physical movements and thoughts can be monitored through their television sets".

    Just change "future" to "currently" then "television" to "mobile device" or "social media accounts" where appropriate.

    There have been books written on this and all the connections, problem is people read for entertainment or present day gossip interoffice turmoil or sexcapades. Through the visual arts we are being entertained and not educated when we are told we are being informed we are actually being led, into a blind alley.

    The part I so dearly love is that you can tell people any truth and they will fight tooth and nail to reserve the right to remain ignorant and believe the lie that was issued them with their voter registration card, and that is an accusation of all parties all of them have their reasons for allowing their followers to fly blind because if we all knew the truth we would have the power and run our own lives.

    The only reason you can find my name on the net is because the (lots of really bad words here) politicians put tax and voting records on the web.....

    You will find stuff on me from my profession. Can’t write journal articles and get patents without them being on there. I’m also on my volunteer fire depertment’s site. Old addresses are there too. So, enough to be creepy yes.

    I used to believe I still had a small bit of personal privacy. A couple searches rid me of that fantasy.:(
