I use a (fictional) metaphor for government (daddy), and child (citizen) regarding privacy rights, and later on, I use the same frame, and change the metaphor, implying that various security-minded organizations can easily detain an individual for personal gain (they want to date the wife who sent naked photos to her husband , his detention is there to socially discredit him and get him out of the way, of the would-be suitor..)

# no insults from my end Mr.Lebbing. I was being sarcastic, not rude. If
you feel slighted, please be aware that  interpretations may vary. I
have simply sent my intended interpretation, but you are equally 
entitled to possess your own interpretation. What a sender wishes to
convey is not always the same as what a recipient receives or
understands. So in the crypto-world, we sign things. Here, I am simply
explaining my intended meaning of the word. Such is the risk with
sarcasm and allegory. Misinterpretation.
