I went to a demo of something very similar.
Big Brother may be watching you, but he sure isn't watching you (all of you) in real time. Computers can't analyze a unique "you" and spot
peculiar behavior patterns and flag them. This is a free country, and there's all sorts of peculiar behavior patterns.
Now... if you're stupid enough to make yourself a target (go around telling everyone you want to overthrow the government, buy semi-automatic weapons
and other explosives and move out to the countryside, obtain a fake drivers' license (or one for another country), use a lot of offshore banking, and
negotiate with gun runners and drug dealers, then yes, you're going to have Big Brother watching you.
Heck, you'll have everyone in the country watching you and saying "my gosh! That's a dangerous nut-case!"
But the average citizen isn't being watched. There's too many people, and it's such a waste of time to focus on groups and individuals who
aren't doing anything extremely suspicious (seeming to be a government threat.)
No, hanging out on this board doesn't make you a government threat.
