  • Big Brother, like God,
    has always been watching.

    But while God is omniscient,
    Big Brother is not.

    And it makes him Crazy!

    So He listens in
    on Everything.

    Which only means
    He's even more confused than us.

    And nine times out of ten,
    He gets it wrong.

    The Cyber Universe
    is far too vast

    for human understanding.

    God has no need of analysts,
    God has no need of spies,
    God answers to no oversight committee.

    Bureaucracy condemns
    the INITIALS
    (regardless of their order)
    to being wrong.

    With God, there is no flaw
    except humanity
    who keeps ignoring
    the instructions
    sent down decoded and obvious to all
    thinking they know better.

    They Don't.
    God laughs.

    Big Brother
    has no clue.
