2 Panopticism in everyday life: The Idea The Vision Present Day Parent Child Relationship Religion Schools Technology Can it work? The Idea The Vision Present Day Parent Child Relationship Religion Schools Technology Can it work?

3 The idea of Panopticism Michel Foucault's Idea Controlling Behavior through fear of being watched. Derived from Jeremy Bentham’s idea of the Panopticon The panopticon was the design of a prison in which each prisoner would be contained in a solitary cell in a set of cell placed in a circle around a central tower. The prisoners would not be able to see the guards in the tower. The prisoners would also not be able to see each other or to interact without being monitored at all times. Michel Foucault's Idea Controlling Behavior through fear of being watched. Derived from Jeremy Bentham’s idea of the Panopticon The panopticon was the design of a prison in which each prisoner would be contained in a solitary cell in a set of cell placed in a circle around a central tower. The prisoners would not be able to see the guards in the tower. The prisoners would also not be able to see each other or to interact without being monitored at all times.

4 The idea is to imprint in the criminals head that they are constantly being watched. It is hoped that once released the prisoner, having this notion of constantly being surveyed, will alter or correct behavior such that they will not longer commit crimes because they will feel they are under surveillance.

5 Panopticism in schools Foucault’s Vision Separate children in a fashion similar to that of the prisoners in the Panopticon Less classroom chattering and distraction More effective learning environment Problems Children lose social interaction By placing children in groups it enables the children to teach each other Some children learn better from another child explaining how a certain system works There are added benefits to the children who then teach By teaching the child undergoes a greater understanding of the process which they now must teach to another individual.

6 Panopticism in the Parent Child Relationship Santa Claus is Coming to Town Lyrics: “He sees you when your sleeping, he knows when you’re wake, he knows if you’ve been bad or good so be good for goodness sake. You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I’m telling you why; Santa Claus is coming to town.”

7 The Hidden Meaning : “He sees you when your sleeping, he knows when you’re wake, he knows if you’ve been bad or good” This song signifies Santa’s omniscient abilities “You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I’m telling you why” It controls children’s behavior through fear of not getting gifts “He sees you when your sleeping, he knows when you’re wake, he knows if you’ve been bad or good” This song signifies Santa’s omniscient abilities “You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I’m telling you why” It controls children’s behavior through fear of not getting gifts

8 Religion Societal necessity Teaches people to be good to one another Necessary as a form of maintaining order in developing civilizations. Does so by controlling the thoughts and actions of individuals Sins Indecent thoughts Acts of violence Not following the teachings Committing Sins will lead to eternal Damnation Religion can be manipulated to be a form of control to get individuals to follow as set of given rules and guidelines by fear of punishment.

9 dogma 1: a religious doctrine that is proclaimed as true without proof 2: a doctrine or code of beliefs accepted as authoritative. "Through the Looking Glass". That poem, "The Walrus and the Carpenter" that's an indictment of organized religion. The walrus, with his girth and his good nature, he obviously represents either Buddha, or... or with his tusk, the Hindu elephant god, Lord Ganesha. That takes care of your Eastern religions. Now the carpenter, which is an obvious reference to Jesus Christ, who was raised a carpenter's son, he represents the Western religions. Now in the poem, what do they do... what do they do? They... They dupe all these oysters into following them and then proceed to shuck and devour the helpless creatures en masse. I don't know what that says to you, but to me it says that following these faiths based on mythological figures ensure the destruction of one's inner-being. Organized religion destroys who we are by inhibiting our actions... by inhibiting our decisions, out of... out of fear of some... some intangible parent figure who... who shakes a finger at us from thousands of years ago and says... and says, "Do it - Do it and I'll fu[**]in' spank you. “ -Loki Quote from the Movie “Dogma” "Through the Looking Glass".

10 This quote shows that interpretation depends on the view of the reader. Religion is a very powerful tool that in most cases promotes peace; however, it can also be used as device for control by using fear as a motivator or instigator.

11 Panopticism in History

12 The Nazi Party Started a “Boy Scout” type organization called the “Hitlerjugend” (Hitler Youth) Like scouts, the hitlerjugend, had weekly meetings teaching them survival basics. Part of their survival they were taught depended on the strength of their country men and women. Speaking out against the government or disobeying the law weakened the country The hitlerjugend were instructed to report any and all individuals including family members to their leader. These violators were then arrested.

14 Children Report on Family Members The DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Program Designed to teach kids the dangers of drugs Encourages Kids to report any and all illegal activity to the Police This destroys the families involved often leading to divorce of the parents and/or undoing of family ties.

18 New Technology Organized Crime Where there’s technology, there’s theft. Local Police Cameras at intersections Now you can have tickets mailed to you! The government Monitors your phone calls Capable of finding you anywhere in the world Organized Crime Where there’s technology, there’s theft.

19 Organized Crime Not only do the banks have cameras but so do Criminals, and theirs are more high tech. Typical ATM Camera hidden inside that allows both the screen and touch pad to be viewed as you enter in your password.

20 Getting the pin isn’t enough to clean out your account. That’s why they also steal your ATM card number. Standard ATM Device to capture ATM card number.

21 As long as the information is there it can be stolen or sold. Increasing technology doesn’t make you safe. But you sure will be told that it will. As long as there is system to keep you safe there exists a system to get around it. As long as the information is there it can be stolen or sold. Increasing technology doesn’t make you safe.

22 The Police Cameras at intersections The idea was good- install cameras to prevent accidents caused by motorists running red lights through fear of being issued a ticket when caught on camera. The reality is that the fear of being ticketed is so great that accidents actually increased as a result of motorists panicking and slamming on the breaks when they would have otherwise gone through the intersection.

23 The Government Currently the U.S. Government monitors every cell phone conversation made in the U.S. (possibly in the world) They search for certain key words Then the key words are run through a computer program that filters the key words and finds the context in which they are used to determine if the person is a threat to National Security. Tracking your location The FCC has recently required that all cell phones contain GPS (Global Positioning System) technology The user will be able to be tracked within 300 meters by next year.

25 Panopticism works New York City was experiencing high volumes of crime rates. To combat criminal behavior Mayor Rudolf Giuliani decided to put fear into the criminals of the city The number one area crime took place was in the Subway system.

26 Subway map w/ Graffiti Subway car w/ Graffiti Giuliani realized that as long as area existed in which criminals felt comfortable they would go there to commit crimes.

27 Subway Station Subway car - clean Rudolf created an new work force for the subway system who’s sole purpose was to clean all graffiti within 1 hour of it being put up. The clean stations made the criminals believe that they were in a clean place thus affecting their decision to commit crimes. They were uncomfortable trashing or misbehaving in such a pure space.

28 The missing piece With all the advances in technology we should feel safer, right? But the truth is with all this added safety comes added risk. What you aren’t told is how all these new technological advances will impact your life in a negative way. If the government can track you then so can anyone. With all the available detailed information about our lives out there it becomes that much easier for individuals to find out our most personal information; and use it to influence and take over our lives.
