Paranoia Part II: Facecrime

One of the commenters on Felicia's Facebook post concerning part one of this post pointed out a post from Infowars, ironically posted today, about a program that was shown to the military and law enforcement groups that would scan email, phone calls, and social networking websites looking for persons who resent the government. It supposedly psychologically analyzes either your writing style or your voice stress patterns/words in order to identify people who show signs of harboring resentment about the government in order to identify people for further surveillance as a potential terrorist. The Brit who wrote the program feels such resentment is a sign of mental illness, and obviously those who this program identifies are probably in need of "mental health assistance". probably not unlike the way the Soviets "helped" those who felt resentment against the state. Just remember, Orwell's Airstrip One used to be Britain....

If this does not scare the crap out of you. I really don't know what will.
