Loss of our liberties and especially our ‘Privacy’ has been the state of affairs for a generation (at least). The lightening speed of ‘tech’ is distorting our perception of ‘Normal’ as the acceptance of an ‘Orwellian’ police state is thrust upon us. This is not a “conspiracy theory” or paranoid delusion.

“Civil liberties groups are concerned that since 2002, thousands of Americans who have never been arrested have had their picture in a database, thanks to their driver’s licenses being submitted. Groups are concerned that this creates a “digital line-up” of suspects who have never even been in trouble with the law before.
