Snoopsyology

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: snoop see o lo gy

Sentence: The trusted Dr. C Awl’s latest podcast of his students’ latest studies into what people do when they think nobody’s looking reached a conclusion that privacy no longer exists. Further research by the observed snoopsyologist will undoubtedly uncover even less about what we already know, or want to know, about people we don’t know. Dr. C. Awl does contend thick presence of various forms of surveillance will eliminate “gossip”, or “hearsay” as well as “curiosity” as eventually all will be heard and seen by all. The only really safe people will be the deaf and blind.

Etymology: From snoop (to spy on) and "ology" (any branch of knowledge or a science.)

Spwatchandspontroll

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: spwach and spun troll

Sentence: With satellites, the internet, unseen cameras evgerywhere including in cell phones, military stealth systems and weapons, and business tracking networks that not only track people, but what they buy, where they go, what they do, and how often ... George Orwell's famous prediction "Big Brother is watching you" is true. However, George missed the mark by thinking it was only the governments of the nations of the world who are the Big Brothers watching you. Nor is it just, the military mights with stealth systems and spy weapons, of all the nations of the world! Perhaps it is not the nation, who seems to say and do much, but the nation that silently watches, and capitalizes on the knowledge they gain from watching, who does the most. But this distracts us from the even bigger Big Brothers! Perhaps it is not the goverments and militaries, of the nations of the world, who are the Biggest Brothers ... could it be the cor-pore-over-U-ations and business car-tells ... those inter-netting-U billionaires ... those oil-slickering-U billionaires ... or the health care and drug-U billionaires who have the greatest leverage, your health, to care-4-U like hostages in hospitals ... et cetera? You get the idea. What about the not-so-legal drug and sex billionaires? The more things change, the more they stay the same. The most Powerful and Biggest Brothers of all, are those with the most money. Those who most cleverly spwatchandspontroll, are those biggest business trillionaires!

Etymology: SPY WATCH AND SPY CONTROL = SPWATCH AND SPONTROLL is a play on ROCK AND ROLL. Both are different ways to rock the world and roll over it.
