An Orwellian Explanation Orwellian in nature, data collecting agencies are necessary; They keep adding info to the files created at someones’ request. Everything gathered is retrieved, analyzed, and assessed, So there’s no need for alarm. Live your lives as you see best, And maybe a minor infraction discovery occurrence at worst. And a penalty imposed, nothing unbearable, “A small price for forgiveness.” Focus on the big picture; be rest assured there is purpose without flagrance. After all, we seek the same things; peace, prosperity, health, and clear conscience. And when glitches are found, they are expeditiously corrected by the agencies. So always remember, information is vital. Continue to be an obligatory participant. Exercise discipline for yourselves and the children. You are a generation of promise. Individual sacrifice is honoured for the greater and common good of the entirety. “Where shallow waters flow, there, I cross with many. I journey as far as I’m living; faith will do the rest.”
