The Little Numbers In The Bigger Picture Or Why 40-80 On The WatchList Will Affect All Of Us

When John Key told us that 30-40 people where donating to ISIS and 40 more where on the watch list for possible transgressions he introduced what I would like to call the virtual Jeremy Bentham watchtower called the  Pantopticon. According to Wikipedia:

The concept of the design is to allow a single watchman to observe (-opticon) all (pan-) inmates of an institution without the inmates being able to tell whether or not they are being watched. Although it is physically impossible for the single watchman to observe all cells at once, the fact that the inmates cannot know when they are being watched means that all inmates must act as though they are watched at all times, effectively controlling their own behaviour constantly.

This is not the first time he has used this insidious small number switch and bait trick.

Two weeks ago he announced that only a small number of SAS agents would be send off to  the killing fields of Syria and Iraq to instruct local troops. He did this because he and his little Freethinkers group know full well that if only a few people out of every strada disappear it is almost impossible for us to check with how many troops we are  really involved in the mayhem that will ensue over the next couple of months in the area and with the US training another 1100 troops around the Taranaki region you can bet your bottom dollar it will be a hell of a lot more that just those few SAS troops.
