See 2009 Segment on thought reading machines
See "60 Minutes" 2009 segment on thought reading machines.  "Big Brother" is definitely watching, but in ways that Orwell seemed never even to have imagined!  This is not only our future, but our present!
See U.S. Patent granted in 1996 for remote emotion reading/control machine
This machine can determine one's emotional state remotely without one's knowledge or consent and it's suggested use is for those who might be feeling "unsavory" things to determine whether or not they should be arrested or detained!  "Thought Crime," anyone?  In the U.S. people are not supposed to be apprehended because of what they are secretly thinking or feeling, only for criminal acts BY LAW!  This patent was granted in 1996; can you imagine what they have developed by now, secretly, almost two decades later?  Is "Big Brother" watching YOU?
Apparatus for remotely monitoring and altering human brain waves
Another "Big Brother" type surveillance machine patent originally granted by the U.S. Patent Office in 1976 (! Almost 4 decades ago!  Can you imagine what they have now?)  This machine can monitor your brain waves and decode them into the actual words and images you're thinking and seeing AND alter them remotely and without your knowledge.  1984 has come, but is still with us!  Look at this and the other links listed on this site and post them to your websites and tell everyone about them.  This type of technology should not be quietly used againsrt U.S. citizens, not only because of the moral and privacy ramifications, but their use is ILLEGAL!  If you feel you are a victim of these machines, please contact   http://www.freedomfchs.com which stands for Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance.

Thank you for your vigilence on these issues and for your participation!
