Creeping Fascism 

Big Brother is coming. I don't remember the exact quote, or who said it (and am too lazy to Google), but someone predicted that with each advance in technology, the Father-Knows-Best State becomes more inevitable.

Two slightly scary bits in the news today effectively support this proposition: a military blimp is now being tested as a surveillance instrument for DC (floating over my head now, watching me...), and a Barcelona club is injecting RFID tags into VIP-listers. These are the subtle beginnings of something quite unappealing. Welcome to the Police State. Please wear your tinfoil hat at all times.
