The complete and utter failure of the trillions of dollars spent on the security establishment and invasion our private lives is being repeated every time I hear an ‘update’ about the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
Every time I dumped a small bottle of water, it was a waste.
Every time someone told me there was something wrong with my toothpaste, it was a farce.
Every time I unbuckled my pants and walked shoeless across metal detectors, it was obviously a facade.
Flight MH370 is a painful reminder that in the grand scheme of things, if someone if committed to interfering with our lives, they will do it, regardless of the impediments.
And I’m not talking about terrorists. I’m talking about the people that have taken over our lives.
The mega-security companies, SCEC spying and data swaps of companies like Google with the NSA all remind us that we are being watched, but for the wrong reasons.
Flight MH370 reminds us that ‘free’ is a four-letter word to our rulers.
And the search? They might as well declare that they’re looking for Santa Claus because this how truly embarrassing the whole thing has become.
