And this from the author of "My Normblog Profile" where Shakespearian masks were notoriously absent. Or were they?

"Big Brother does reveal something sick about our society. It's just that the sickness is more profound than anyone realizes."

Good point Chris. I think that BB and crucially how people are transforming and changing themselves in its mirror reveals something very important about.

I am not sure I would call it sickness though.


Is it illiberal?
In the past, could people choose the mask that they wore, or were those masks forced upon them? The social sanctions that followed from inappropriate behavior were surely no worse than those that result from perceived insincerity today?
