We constantly observe signs that our basic civil liberties are being eroded, from smoking to driving. From what we may say to what we may think. Not much is free from regulation or legislation, and it has permeated into military life in an enormous way. Changes have been wrought in the infrastructure, even to the extent that the N.A.A.F.I at my place of work has changed from a traditional one to a 'Costa Coffee' bistro! Equally sinister is the surveillance we are under, whether it be visual or audial. Print is not free, nor is the ether. Even Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park is minitored by the thought police. We are noe being told what subjects we may discuss, and how we may talk about them. My question is; Are we over regulated? And does anyone care.
