A failure of President Obama’s administration: is that it continued the agenda of the previous Republican administration, by allowing Section 1031 to be written into the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

Complete and utter surveillance: Rulers have sought to preserve the status quo ever since there were people. And those so-called cautionary novels, 1984 by George Orwell, and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley... They aren't something to watch out for in the future at all. The blatant outrages of complete and utter surveillance, drugging, brainwashing and steering of the people as described in those books has already happened, while today more heinous but less obvious crimes against nature and human beings are being perpetrated and enforced for monetary profit in even more insidious and subtle ways.
