The Feds in My Head

This op-ed piece from the New York Times is chillingly Orwellian. Has there ever been a point in your life where you were more certain that you could not trust the government?

So you trust the government less because of a hacky Orweillian op-ed piece? I'm afraid I'm a bit confused. :/

No, I mistrust the government because it has proven itself untrustworthy. The piece had a poetic way of expressing what I had already felt. Back in the day, you suspected that the government was corrupt. Now you know it is. They've become so powerful and emboldened that they don't even bother to lie to us anymore. And that is scary.
