In the beginning there was a lot of shock and outrage at the information gathering that takes place by the NSA and GCHQ etc. Most people had no idea of the capability of intelligence agencies to gather information about everybody who might be a suspect now or considered one in the future, and that includes you. But there is an interesting psychological effect of the drip feed effect of the Snowden files being released.
People become habituated, they get used to hearing and seeing things, they see a news story of something related to what the intelligence agencies are up to. After a while, after enough stories have come out, people in general lose interest, it becomes a big yawn.
This suits the intelligence agencies perfectly, people are being psychologically conditioned to accept the fact that they are being watched and there is nothing they can do about it even if they are doing nothing wrong. The world is being conditioned and it doesn’t even know it. But on a side note I also have to say that those who think they are in control are also being used.
The reason why I created this post is to show how easy it is to get people to look at something using a very different subject.
