Panopticon versus the conspiracy

Post by Phenopath » Mon Apr 13, 2009 8:35 pm

Deep under Whitehall, ever vigilant, the AI is alert to every potential threat to the nation.

The populace are under constant scrutiny as the great mind listens to a thousand phone conversations, reads a million emails and watches through inumerable CCTV cameras.

The multitude are tabulated and cross-referenced; their every behaviour filtered, correlated and simulated. Suspicions are analysed, prioritised and escalated. Above ground the masters are content that protection is complete.

Deep in the woods the greatest threat to Britian remains unobserved and undetected. The source of true terror; at the root of the corruption lies the conspiracy of squirrels.
