Whenever I hear these announcements I feel like we’re only this far away from that droning voice that exists in so many stories or movies about a dystopian future. It’s like in the Simpsons when Marge says “You know, Fox turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually I didn’t even notice!” Like from this perfectly legitimate announcement we’ll eventually turn us into a completely paranoid society where we’ve allowed Homeland Security to violate even more of our basic rights in the name of our own safety. That’s when we’ll have the voice like the ice cream truck in Invader Zim which drones on “You like ice cream. You love it. Your life is meaningless without ice cream…” But for you know, things other than ice cream.
