Note: I just decided to rename this piece the title of this post: Fathers Who Never Sleep (version 1), instead of the awkward: Our Lord Who Art in the National Insecurity Agency (version 1).
I’ve been reading some about the mass psychology of fascism, and the conditions that create the necessary atmospheres, and, ultimately, the destructive leaders of fascism. It is the de-powered, and indoctrinated masses who are the driving forces behind fascist governments and leaders.
Unfortunately, America is taking the route of fascism considering all of the freedom killing laws that Washington is burying the United States Constitution with. We now have a multi-billion dollar spy agency–the National Security Agency–collecting all data it possibly can from EVERYONE in the whole world. The data that they collect is unlimited. From medical records to all online activity to video recordings of you wherever you go if there is a camera near by. There are cameras on every street corner in the cities now.
This essentially is a complete violation of the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. And, furthermore, it has full liberal support, whereas the Patriot Act, signed by George W. Bush (warrantless wire-tapping [a less serious offense]) was completely opposed by those same liberals.
A general named Keith Alexander is the head of the NSA, and he gets whatever he wants when it comes to funding his digital spy agency that puts the KGB to shame. Because western cultures are founded on patriarchies, this leads to patriarchal religions as well as governments. The archetypal father figure is the symbol of security, safety, protection, leadership and head of the family traditionally found in western cultures.
What this leads into on a mass scale, psychologically speaking, is paranoia, sexual repression, and fear when the father figures in government get blinded by their own passions, fears, and needs for more power. I made this image as a symbolic representation of the insecure general who heads the NSA watching you and collecting information on everything you think, say, or do twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
It’s really a mockery of the fascist and pathetic paternal parodies composing the decomposing edifices of what used to be a semi-functioning government within a republic that tried to be a democracy.
