LOOKING THROUGH NEIGHBORS WINDOWS: HOW WE HAVE BECOME A NATION OF SPIES

“We have become a nation of spies.”


In the recent years, more and more people have found themselves in constant trouble for their personal lives and personal views. But there is a catch to what I just said, “Their lives.” Yet how do they get into trouble for their personal lives and views? Well, it’s because we as a society get each other in trouble. We as American people have become a nation where we love to get each other in jams. It usually ends with someone losing a job or some other opportunity in life. And to top it off, the people who want you in trouble the most are just as awful at times as the people they attack. We sit and wait, especially for a public figure to say or do anything remotely bad, and we pounce on them. As if we are perfect and have never done anything in life.

But where does it all come from; where did it start? What has turned us into these type of people? Have we always been this way, or is it new because of this new social media space. There have always been the nosy neighbor, but at this rate at which we turn on each other, I think not. The attacks usually come from people whose lives are not where they want them to be. They are people who represent the down and out, the shut out; and now they have a voice. It’s almost like these people have formed a coalition and have forged ahead against anything that is seen as in a better position than themselves. And instead of ignoring it, we feed into to it, then it gets worse and worse. So why do people feel the need to ruin your life because their lives are so bad? Because no one in a good space is going to want to see you falter the way this group does.

We are in a nation where people feel so broken and down. Jobs have been hard to come by, so anyone in a better situation is seen as having an easy life. And if you get upset about anything, then you’re not grateful because how can you have problems, you have money. So whenever someone says or does anything that is unpopular and they’re in a position, let’s attack because my life sucks. I want someone to feel the same pain as me. These people in a higher position are forced to apologize while that apology gives the upset person a bit of gratitude and power in a world where they are usually powerless. And that’s what we’re doing in society, we are giving power a lot of times to the powerless. And you start to introduce all these emotions into the equation.

And in the end, it’s a problem because we are slowly but surely losing our rights. And we are losing rights because of each other. The government is not stepping into our lives. We are enforcing our will on each other. You let me look into your window and anything you do inside your home that’s my business I will look to get you into trouble for doing so. I just wonder what the future holds as more technology enters our lives. Will we see more people in trouble? Or will so much about another be in our society that it can’t be used against us any longer.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
