RAP NEWS : Big Brother is WWWatching You

submitted by Gabrielle Price

Juice Rap News: Episode 15 - Big Brother is WWWatching You.  September 2012 rocks around with some crucial developments in the ongoing struggle over the future of the internet.  Will it remain the one open frequency where humanity can bypass filters and barriers; or become the greatest spying machine ever imagined?  The future is being decided as we type.  Across Oceania, States have been erecting and installing measures to legalise the watching, tracking and storage of data of party-members and proles alike.  If such plans materialize, will this place ever be the same?  And what will be the evolutionary consequences for our human journey?  Join our plucky host Robert Foster as he conducts an incisive analysis of the situation at hand.  Joining him are newly appointed Thought Police General at the Pentopticon, Darth O'Brien Baxter, and a surprisingly lucid Terence Winston Moonseed.  Once again, in the midst of this Grand Human Experiment, we are forced to ask tough questions about our future.  Will it involve a free internet which will continue to revolutionize the way the world communicates with itself?  Or is our picture of the future a Boot stamping on this Human InterFace forever?

- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over
- Comments that explicitly call for violence
- Comments with links to third party sites that are not relevant to the content of the conversation. No spam.
- Because we moderate comments does not mean we do not have a sense of humor. The Royal 'We', you know, the editorial...
- know...take it easy, man. We're all in this together.
