Victor Davis Hanson Quote

“Imagine the traditionalist as living in synopticon—a suspect that is the target of 24/7 viewing, indoctrination, and conditioning by progressive auditors. In other words, a 40-45 percent minority of Americans is relentlessly lectured, sermonized, demonized, and neutered by a 360- degree ring of prying institutional overseers. There is no escape. There is no respite. There is no quarter given.”

More accurate than not. The full effort of all four branches (executive, legislative, judicial, MSM) of the current occupying statist theocracy infesting this land are practicing patrons of the quote's observation.

It's not too hard to imagine  it's already here with social media and digital cameras covering nearly every square inch of 'public' spaces.  Even our phones and computers are spying on us  and the new 'smart' TV's.  Sheesh!  George Orwell's 1984 has essentially already happened!  Big Brother, the telescreen, the minute of hate, newspeak, face crime (on social media)!  And leftists are lapping it up...

I'm with E Archer on this.

It is no wonder "Science seeks after God as Truth seeks Reality",
wanting to emulate that which takes place in the spiritual realm. It is getting very close. Those seven eyes see all, as those seven windows are ever before the mind of mankind. 
"For who hath despised the day of small things? For they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth." Zech 4:10, in one accord Rev 5:6, Pro 22:12 "The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge".

Are not growing, the very characteristic and necessity of life, and progress, the characteristic of the progressive, one and the same?  If you are just lengthening and extending the indoctrination can you call that progress or yourself a progressive? How does this Mr Hanson know so much about indoctrination, sermons, neutered mentality strategies, and institutional overseeing?
