Big Brother is bullshit

Fans of Penn and Teller's 'Bullshit'* will probably appreciate their 17min. debunking of America's PATRIOT Act, ostensibly introduced to fight terrorism in the US. Beware of hyperbolic paranoia though: there's still enough freedom under the PATRIOT Act to criticise it; P&T argue however this is absolutism limited only by idiocy.

Best line then is about politicians and bureaucrats: "All that protects us from their evil is their incompetence."
