i think 'big brother' is plenty busy watching targets they deem of special interest only. regular folks probably have a better chance of being spied on by a suspicious spouse, an 'ex' or a creepy neighbor. someone who is so bad at shadowing that you know they are there can't have much training or skill.
harboring irrational thoughts can be a destructive thing that's easily overcome. if thoughts of being watched were obsessive to me i hope a friend would urge me to speak with a trained counselor.

Regarding the government watching "targets", what they can consider a target is open to THEIR interpretation. They can and do abuse this power. (and I know this from experience). Since 9/11, they have power to snoop without a warrant.

I would say a person should seek help if they DON'T think they are being watched - this is much more dangerous.

Yes I worry about this all the time. I worry that TPTB are keeping a tab on our google searches to see who's awake and who isn't. I also worry about thinking bad things about people in my vicinity in case they're psychic. Often if i swear at someone in my head i'll also think ''that was just a test in case you're psychic'' just to be on the safe side. Now THAT'S paranoid.

Yes, we are being watched, all of the time. Here's a hint. watch the film, "Enemy of the State" staring Will Smith. Take the technology you see in that movie, and multiply that by 1000. The answer is close to the current technology the NSA has. I have been told by those in a position to know that the NSA (National Security Agency) has infrared satellites that can read a postage stamp laying in your yard from 250 miles up in space, at night, in a rainstorm. And I would not doubt this even a little bit either.
