Convergence

[ #11215 ]
Dear Log,

«Three years later - after 9/11, after the coming of rightwing religious ideology to the White House, and, most importantly, after the erosion of Constitutional rights of many kinds - this piece seems eerily prescient. In The Handmaid's Tale, the eye from the American dollar bill is used as a logo by the Gilead secret police, who control people through credit card information. It's the same eye just adopted by the Homeland Security folks, who can now - yes - control people through credit card information. That's what biologists would call "convergence".»
