A government that watches you 24 hours a day to make sure that you put your children to bed on time and that you give them the right meals?
How much more bizarre does it have to get?
Approximately 2,000 families have already gone through "Family Intervention Projects", but the government plans increase the scope of this program to 20,000 more families in the next two years.
Why not just watch the families?
In fact, why not just watch everyone all the time to make sure that they are doing every little thing to the government's pleasing?
But the bizarre control of families in the U.K. does not end there. If some in the U.K. government have their way, all parents will soon be forced to sign "contracts" to ensure that their children behave at school.
These contracts will be known as "Home School Agreements" and parents who do not get their children to act the correct way will be faced with huge fines.
In fact, the proposed plan envisions that "good" parents will be able to complain about other parents who fail to ensure that their children behave.
But it is not just families that are facing these draconian "Big Brother" measures. After all, this is a nation where citizens are actually being paid to spy on their neighbors.
I don't know about you, but when I hear things like that, the very worst abuses of places like East Germany and North Korea come to mind.
The reality is that the U.K. is now an extremist "Big Brother" society. If you enjoy having every minuscule detail of your life watched and controlled by the government, then perhaps it would be a great place for you to move to.
But if you value personal freedom and personal privacy, then the U.K. is one of the last places you would ever want to live.
