walls have ears

So has it been from the very beginning. One would've thought we'd be used to it by now.

Hebrews 4:13 - neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.
(check out Psalm 139 to get the full picture of this)

Surat an-Nisa' 4: 108 - They try to conceal themselves from people, but they cannot conceal themselves from Allah, ...

Rig-Veda (extract of a hymn) - ...The Sun, that men may see the great knowing god.  The Stars slink off like thieves, in company with Night, before the all-seeing eye, whose beams reveal his presence...

Odu Ifa (paraphrased) - .. Esu Elegbara is always vigilant, sees and hears everything..

One could go on and on. I thought it quite funny that 'surveillance' points are clearly marked in this funky part of London.  Unless of course it's all tongue-in-cheek. Or even more awesomely if it is real, but camouflaged as tongue-in-cheek - that would be genius.  Don't get me wrong. Very real and visible surveillance is happening in London. You are quite literally captured on video of some kind from stepping out of your door in this city.  If you fancy losing your drivers license, or lots of money, or both, then try driving through Camden.  

I digress.  It appears we are ok with being watched, as long as the watcher declares s(he)'s watching.  Or, if the watching entity is somewhat existentially lofty and intangible to us. So what then, if I may ask, is the problem we have with the NSA?

Oh yes, and remember - He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake ;)
