"Mom, some kids at school said the Government is bad; is that true?"
"Of course not, darling," she said nervously as she looked up. "Why would anyone say something like that?"
"They said the Government watches and listens to us all the time and we have no privacy."
"That's silly!" she replied shakily as she collected plates. "The Government is only there to make sure that we're all safe, dear. Go get ready for bed."
"Okay, Mom."
"Please, he's just a curious child, no need to investigate us," she hissed at the camera on the ceiling. "Please don't investigate us."
