Creepy show on Disney: Indoctrination by the surveillance state or innocent entertainment?

Special Agent Oso.

This is quite intriguing in light of last year’s revelations about the surveillance state.

Most people probably already know that insect spy drones are already in the works. While spy shows are not new (Here, here, and here you can find some information about the Pentagon’s and CIA’s ties to Hollywood), it is not hard to see that at the very least, this show gets young children used to the notion that small cameras are everywhere and that their ends are always beneficial. Notice that the Shutterbug sends signals of its location directly to agent Oso via the satellite, where he is told the children’s exact whereabouts. Some illuminating lyrics from the song:

She’s always in flight, on the case both day and night 
Sending the picture right up to the satellite!

Also,

She’s on the front line of a unique team 
So things will be fine whenever she sounds the alarm!

In other words, whenever something is “going wrong,” Shutterbug takes a picture of it and sends that picture and a signal of the location of that “wrong” to Special Agent Oso so that he can help to “fix” the situation. In the video, you see the Shutterbug taking a picture of a dead plant to document that someone has let a plant die and did not clean up the mess. Shutterbug also takes pictures of sad kids to report to Special Agent Oso that their lives need some “fixing.” Note that the Shutterbug flies inside the home of these children. All of this happens while the parents have left the child unattended.

This has probably already circulated around Tumblr, but I just couldn’t resist giving my opinion about this, especially since similar smart phone apps are now available.

Indoctrination by the surveillance state or innocent entertainment? You decide!
