Thought for the day

Given the mass surveillance that is going on and how our governments want to profile us in ever finer detail, it struck me today that the growth of streaming media is an absolute goldmine for them in this regard. As an example, many people now subscribe to film streaming websites such as Netflix. It goes without saying that intelligence services have access to these types of sites and what their clients watch. The type of movies and shows you watch do actually say quite a lot about you, tie this in with the rest of the mass surveillance of general populations and you can see how it soon becomes quite easy to build a psychological profile for the majority of the population. The sort of film you watch from a website such as Netflix could have you marked out as a potential political agitator. Thought crime is slowly becoming a reality, maybe not today, but the time is coming.
