Orwellian Surveillance Society
[quote name='sumishi' date='07 October 2011 - 12:24 AM' timestamp='1317926787' post='113179']

[size="3"]The objective of this thread is to collect news and information related to covert/overt monitoring of activities of people by governments and establishments, along with data-warehousing of captured data followed by data mining and profiling of individuals.

This is the surveillance society that Orwell describes in his dystopian novel "1984," published in 1949.

Orwell's dystopia is not much different from how things seem to be panning out.

My comments, within quoted material, will be [color="#ff00ff"]{ like this }[/color]



I had read of the cameras lurking everywhere in London (both streets and buildings) described as Big Brother. These cameras are supposed to improve security. I don't know if this was a system devised when there were terrorist threats from IRA.
