Remember when the movie Minority Report was fiction?
This video was released by the Department of Homeland Security. Apparently using “Future Attribute Screening Technology” they can tell who is a “Malcontent” and who isn’t.
Did you know that you are a malcontent if you have certain behavior or physiological changes. And there is NO way that someone would have an elevated heart-rate or wandering eyes unless they had malintent. That would NEVER happen to someone who maybe just found out their parent had a life threatening disease, or maybe someone who is scared, or slightly agoraphobic or high blood pressure or found out their spouse is cheating on them.
FUTURE Attribute Screening Technology? Um… last time I checked no one could see the future. Except Miss Cleo of course. But other than TV Psychics, it just can’t be done by mere mortals even with the help of technology.
This is just yet another attempt to create a world of guilty until proven innocent. Like the push for mandatory breathalyzers in all cars or, you know, naked scans and invasive, groping TSA screenings.
Did you also know that “recent research undertaken by the Department of Mysteries reveals that magic can ony be passed from person to person when Wizards reproduce. Where no proven Wizarding ancestry exists, therefore, the so-called Muggle Born is likely to have obtained magical power by theft or force.
The Ministry is determind to root out such usurpers of magical power, and to this end has issued an invitation to every so-called Muggle-Born present them to present themselves for interview by the newly appointed Muggle-born Registration Commission”
Sounds an awful lot like “Future Attribute Screening Technology” to me.
Seriously. This is the kind of thing of fiction books and movies. The kind of thing that happens right before the end of any and all freedom.
And just like the wizarding world of Harry Potter, we can’t fight it if we only whisper about what is going on out of fear. But we CAN win will if we stop being so scared of opening our mouths and take a STAND. Make your voice loud and clear and stop letting the freedom grabbers drown you out.
