Only wise people can discern when danger is hidden. Lack of knowledge is destructive. The freedoms of American’s are slowly being taken away just like the proverbial frog in the kettle. Far too many Americans are caught up in their daily routines and can’t feel that the heat is being turned up in the kettle.
For those who have not heard the frog in the kettle proverb:
They say that if you put a frog into a pot of boiling water,
it will leap out right away to escape the danger.
But, if you put a frog in a kettle that is filled with water that is cool and pleasant,
and then you gradually heat the kettle until it starts boiling,
the frog will not become aware of the threat until it is too late.
The frog’s survival instincts are geared towards detecting sudden changes.
This is a story that is used to illustrate how people might get themselves into terrible trouble.
This parable is often used to illustrate how humans have to be careful to watch slowly changing trends in the environment, not just the sudden changes. Its a warning to keep us paying attention not just to obvious threats but to more slowly developing ones.
Let’s say that every year, the local well had an inch less of water in it. A person might realize there’s a problem if there’s suddenly NO water, but a slowly dropping level might not be an obvious crisis until it’s too late!

ONE NATION UNDER SURVEILLANCE!
‘Big Brother is watching’ in ways Orwell never dreamed
Everywhere you look, there it is again – staring you in the face.
The four-way traffic cameras at virtually every intersection. Police secretly attaching GPS tracking devices to citizens’ automobiles. Invasive TSA pat-downs and nude X-ray scannings – after first being required to raise your hands as though you were being arrested. Internet sites that track your online activities so thoroughly they almost seem to know what you’re thinking.
Did you know that the ordinary-looking white van next to you on the highway may house government agents peering at you via backscatter X-ray scanners? Or that Miami and several other U.S. cities are experimenting with drones to spy on their citizens? Do you know how easy it is to track your every movement through your cell phone?
Mesmerized by the amazing convenience and connectedness made possible by gee-whiz consumer electronics, most Americans don’t realize their world is rapidly coming to resemble the totalitarian society described by novelist George Orwell in "1984," one characterized by universal surveillance.
In fact, as documented in the stunning March issue of Whistleblower magazine – titled "ONE NATION UNDER SURVEILLANCE" – in today’s America, "Big Brother is watching in ways Orwell never dreamed."
