New Cold War - Dr.K's Personal Paranoia Meter
This "New Cold War" Paranoia-Meter will help you track just how I paranoid I am feeling about the New Cold War.
Lets Explain the system:
I am chilled out because there is little threat of a New Cold War.
I don't commit criminal acts, and could not possibly be considered a terrorist or subversive threat in our free society.
I feel safe because I know that my democratically elected government and their representatives only have my interests at heart.
I am edgy because the border between acts of terrorism and acts of legitimate protest is being eroded daily.
Dissent is suppressed and commonplace acts of technological exploration are being punished by prison sentences.
Meanwhile we are governed by PR spin merchants who ensure that free speech is a distant memory.
In the New Cold War - truth is the first victim
I am nervous because nobody knows who "the enemy" is anymore.
I am starting to wonder whether we aren't ALL the enemy now.
I am starting to wonder whether I might not be the enemy after all.
I am worried and have burned all my books and deleted all my files.
I no longer discuss anything in public with strangers and only speak to my friends in private.
I am thinking of informing on myself so I can testify as chief witness with immunity from prosecution and start a new life under the witness protection program
I am paranoid because I am being shot by both sides - everybody wants to shoot the messenger.
If Homeland Security don't get me then the Religious Police will. Even if they fail there are Mormons, Jehovahs's Witnesses and Templars who are out to get me ....
It looks like there is no place for filthy hippy atheist anarchist dissenters in the New Cold War and I am making a will.
