Totalitarian TV

?Your town, your street, your home, it?s all in our database.? The BBC knows where you live, and if you haven?t registered your television, it?s ?impossible to hide.?

In his ongoing inquiry into Liberal Fascism, Jonah Goldberg dug up this wonderful piece of filmmaking put in the service of the totalitarian state. 

It?s Orwellian, yes; however, I find this ad less ?1984? and more ?Brazile?. The contemporary state excels in the cracking down on thought crimes and the collecting of telly taxes, but is incapable of the Hobbesian tasks of maintaining order, securing its borders, and pursuing its interest in the international sphere. What once was tyranny now is farce.
