1st body paragraph-

The first lesson that 1984 and Little Brother has taught us is that the government can become very controlling and sometimes not trusted.Like in the movie enemy of the state,("YouTube - Enemy ") it shows how the government can control one innocent person's life. This is exactly what they did to Marcus in the book Little Brother. He was just an innocent bistander who got caught near a terrorist attack on the Bay Bridge in Sanfransisco, and was taken into custody by the government who then watched his every move. A lot of the other Americans had this same fate too, as Marcus said, "But most of the people they hold up aren't doing anything wrong, Dad,' I said. This was getting to me. My own father! 'It's crazy. For every guilty person they catch, they have to punish thousands of innocent people. That's just not good'" ("Cory"). This lesson was learned by Americans and they are aware of how much the government is watching them. They have cameras everywhere in school, and on the streets of London. Just like in the book 1984, there are telescreens everywhere showing that the government is becoming to controlling. It is powerful when it is said in 1984, "It was one of those pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU" ("George Orwell-1984"). Also they say that "You had to live -- did live, from habit that became instinct -- in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized" ("George Orwell -1984"). This shows that nowhere is safe in 1984 and that everymovement is being watched just like in London and Arapahoe. Also in airport security, they have learned that the government can pull people over for no reason at all. This is questioned by most of Americans and they want this taken away. The new full body scan has made it so that it can see every part of a person and that is an invasion of privacy. This is shown on the link full body scan ("Naked")and this is the reason why people do not trust the government with this. It shows everything about this man except the parts that he needed to make a bomb. Like in the book Little Brother it is really powerful when said that, "So if you drove a car, you were just as likely to be pulled over by an SFPD cruiser that wanted to know why you were taking so many trips to the Home Depot lately, and what was that midnight drive up to Sonoma last week about?" ("Cory"). This shows that the government is watching them and do whatever they want because they think that it is justified. The government just became to powerful to fight and they pulled over everybody because they could. This is why the government is very controlling, and why they cannot be trusted at times.
