Paulus,
The UK open prison has grown dramatically over the last ten years. It is a reaction to a moral vacuum (How far do you go in devaluing human life. A beasting in Michael Barrymore's pool followed by supper with a little child?), mass uncontrolled immigration and the Government's invasion in Iraq. We do not know who is friend or enemy within anymore. We are afraid of each other and our undisciplined thoughts.
The speed cameras are tracking mechanisms and will prevent escape. I agree the London Underground Oyster Card is a tracking device too just like Store Cards or Debit Cards.
With every hysterical society rises a Calm Dictator. A Putin. A Bush.
To be non-succeptable to mass hypnosis is to unravel one's own hypnosis first.

I don't see anything calm about Putin or Bush. Besides fear and hysteria are good for governments. They like to be able to tell people that they can protect them from what they fear. Have you looked at http://www.thinkhard.org/2007/09/power-structure.html ?
Thanks for dropping by.

It seems he knew something we are in grave danger of forgetting.
