That’s what it will come to, between the nannies and the NSA:

It’s not surprising to learn that various governments (not just the United States) account for the bulk of online mischief, but it’s a bit sobering to see the numbers laid out by a new Verizon investigative report, summarized by the UK Telegraph: there has been a 300 percent increase in cyber espionage since last year’s report, and government agents are responsible for 87 percent of it. (11 percent came from organized criminals, which I suppose leaves two percent traceable to random jackasses.)

The overwhelming amount of the time, the government is the bad guy. Most of the rest is the Mob. So can Hollywood please for once make a movie where something other than a giant corporation is the bad guy?

Please?

How about "Winter Soldier"? One-world government that promises everlasting peace turns out to be a tool for tyrants.

Perhaps my smart car will calculate how much time I'm going to spend in that traffic jam around the next bend and transmit the information to my smart drawers, which will warn me to pull into the rest stop to use the bathroom first.

Hollywood makes plenty of films where the government is the bad guy. So long as the government is run by conservatives.

"government agents are responsible for 87 percent of it. (11 percent came from organized criminals"

So 98% is from organized criminals.

I was watching a trailer for Hulu's "Fed & Grazed" (I think it's called). Old white men run an evil agg corp that makes petroleum based, exploding cows. They're opposed by young multi-gender, multi-racial coalition of a reporter, an activist and a turncoat daughter. Thing is, I recall reading an acticle years ago saying that the creators in Hollywood actually think this is new and edgy. That they'll really shock the audience by making the business man the heavy. It's like they live in the moment. This very moment. And have never seen "it's a Wonderfull Life" or every western ever made.
