Power, part ii

A brief survey of the nation’s capitol yields an ugly picture. Currently, no less than six acronyms have some investigation active questioning the use of their power, and the arbitrary nature by which this power is being wielded. If the whistleblowers are to be believed, political dissent is the target. Further, reports indicate that some of these acronyms are turning their capabilities towards their own citizens which, if true, would be a violation of their charters. How much intrusion into our daily lives is tolerable? Should we be more reluctant to digitize our innermost thoughts? Should the party in power be able to force non-political actors to act politically?

Ask yourself.
Pay attention.
