Freedom Is a Myth: We Are All Prisoners of the Police State’s Panopticon Village

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide: this is the new mantra of the architects of the police state and their corporate collaborators (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Instagram, and so on). The American Police State has become a metaphorical panopticon, a circular prison in which the inmates are monitored by a single watchman situated in a central tower. Because the inmates cannot see the watchman, they are unable to tell whether or not they are being watched at any given time and must proceed under the assumption that they are always being watched.

    I can’t see your videos so I want to unsubscribe.

    • If there were a forum here, I would try to solve this issue. But will try here. First thing needed is computer os, os version, browser and browser version, and a detailed description of what happens when you click the video. Take screenshots of device screen when problem happens (but unfortunately nowhere to post them here).
      Some possible causes, firewall or browser blocking video, browser need update, need to use a different browser,.. and more. Most likely if you try to watch on a different device, it will work. Desktop computer most likely to play it without issues.

    • Please communicate thru the contact page & we will work with you to see if we can resolve your problem

  2. Just a couple days ago people were battling and fighting oneanother to be first to be able to grab the latest spy on me devices, that being those propaganda boxes, tv’s. Likely most people reading this who are members here will already know that those propaganda boxed have cameras and microphones, and they do work, proof established. But many of those who know this, continue to buy and use such devices. They work to put themselves in prison, willingly, knowingly. Humans are so smart. Just one device of many kind.

  3. Video will not play without stopping and restarting from the beginning. Please fix.
