I MUST STOP WATCHING TELEVISION AND READING NEWSPAPERS.


Couldn't do it, despite TV and newspapers being bad for ones mental health; either brainwashing people, depressing them or frustrating them I just had to have a quick look and glance, stumbled across a couple of things.
Just how much of their freedom are people going to give away and make sure that future generations grow up with a believe in surveillance being a good thing. Since Madeleine McCanns disappearance there has been coverage of child monitoring systems obviously with a view to increase sales of these goods, based on parents fears for their children. 'How well do you know your childminder?'
British troops are involved in the forces fiercest fighting for 50 years. They are being flown back from the blood of Iraq and Afghanistan in bandages. Yet despite promises of priority treatment they have a bigger fight on their hands with the over stretched NHS in order to receive treatment they need. Britain's last surviving military hospital is being closed down, despite it having 'state of the art' equipment, therefore denying injured soldiers the service and specialist support they require. This is a society where no one seems to take any responsibility; it is just passed on to others to look after the toddlers and troops.

The news is only for sensationalism. Over here in the US they just want to see their ratings go up, then they can charge more for ads. George Bush must have been happy that Anna Nicole Smith died as that was all that was shown for weeks and took the spotlight off of his death dealings. Strangely enough the best new channel here is the BBC news.

The whole baby thing, apart from being money driven, is a further wedge driven between people and actual interaction or involvement with their own children. Leave the responsibility for their upbringing to someone else - oh, but you'll be able to 'monitor' it, from a safe distance of course. And ye, the tie-in with surveillance equipment as a whole is alarming as I daresay the same companies make similar systems.
