Big Brother is just getting smarter and creepier.
Just think about this. We are being tracked for money ( $avings for us, $ for the companies). Our purpose is continuously being reduced further, to numbers.

- wow this is pretty crazy stuff. glad i got rid of my Facebook, but i do have a very active twitter and blog. is the only way to be safe from 'big brother' controlling me and analyzing every ounce i put out there for thier own agenda and fodder for the 'economic machine' to just be completely off line? at this point is there really anything a person can do besides not owing a cell phone, not being on the internet? aren't we all tied into the matrix in some way, and in return we get 'easy access' to information, and a way to reach out and contact others 'like us' or who shared a common interest. it feels irreversible, in a way.
sometimes i think that it is the individual who fears being controlled...in some delusions that nothing can(should maybe) control them, as in thier own free will, or choice of life, and in observing humans on a small scale those afraid of control with in relationships often minimize their connections (out of fear), and to apply that to the larger group, a large collection like a community, like a group who is weary of a larger structured force monitroing and controling them (liek "BIG BROTHER")...so that they can preserve a piece of thier autonomy, from the large part which they make up just small part of...the body of humanity, a country, an econtomic situation, a town, a niehborhood. and then i think about the SIZE of humanity, and how important it is for some form of order to protect one another.... and i start getting a bit overwhelmed...and things feel out of my control... so i pull it back i guess. to what will i 'choose' to be a part of. I will choose to have a twitter, I will choose to have a cell phone, because my immediate gratification (to share, be connected...contribute to a body of 'information') and day to day needs are fulfilled in various ways through tying into that system (twitter, cellular devise, internet)... does that make sense? don't worry if it doesn't I am just going with thoughts that come to me as i sit here .
peace and blessings
