Cyber Democracy

Cyber Democracy - an art work by T Newfields
How many layers of encryption are needed
to protect you from the truth?

The government knows every move
you've been making.

Every telephone call &
keystroke is recorded,
so what can anyone do?

Big Brother is watching &
freedom exists only
within constraints.

Citizen-serfs must do
as overlords decree.

Since those on top lust for control
there’s little ordinary folks
see or hear that hasn’t already
pre-packaged, pre-sold, & pre-arranged.

Gus: I can't agree with this poem: the tone is too dark.
Bill: Then you are a perfect citizen! Ideal citizens should believe they are free even when much evidence points to the contrary.
Gus: I don't feel 'ideal'. I just don't believe governments are all-powerful.
