Likewise, your objectivity and non ranting presentation is appreciated and valued. Natalie I appreciated your in depth analysis of both Orwell's masterpiece, 1984, as well as our current situation regarding privacy
in our country. It is interesting to me that the machinery of the government apparatus doesn't realize itself to be intrusive beyond its rights I just noticed that I even speak of the government as a machine. It, and the people who comprise it, see the intrusions as a means to achieving greater security. Our government, however, is ostensibly governed by "the people. " This makes the issue
even more problematic given all the diversity and difference in our society.
