Government, Privacy, and me in a boiling pot…
Do you ever hear a story so outrageous that you immediately think that it’s false, or a conspiracy theory? That’s how I feel about the news now. It amazes me how many things people sluff off as conspiracy, or the ravings of a mad man. Sometimes it is just a mad man, but sometimes you’ve got to admit you’re being slowly boiled to death.
There’s a popular anecdote… A frog won’t stay in boiling water, but put him in a pot of tepid water and slowly turn up the heat and he will be boiled alive. The key is the speed at which the temperature is raised.
We are in a slowly boiling pot. The longer we stay in, the more we adapt and feel like it’s normal.
It’s not normal. It’s ok to question things. It’s ok to realize that not everything that the government, or private corporations, do is for your benefit.
Jump out of the pot.
