'BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU' is written on every parking ticket.'
(- M. Walker. George Orwell's novel '1984' ends with the words 'BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU', which I adapted to comment on the mentality of fining people for minor infringements. The novel '1984' gives a picture of an imaginary totalitarian state, in which all citizens are under close surveillance by the state. A horror situation, which the hero and dissenter, Winston Smith eventually gives in to. It is by no means impossible that a scientific totalitarian state could come about. 'Political correctness' is one step along the way.)
