Analogy for the CIA - Disney's Sorcerer's Apprentice - Foretelling the Future?

Disney's Sorcerer's Apprentice
An Analogy for the CIA in the USA
Even the Wizard's Hat has a "C" on it

Foretelling the Future

When I was a child, I found the above Disney video which is called "Fantasia" terrifying.  All those marching brooms!  Now, I see that it was an prescient allegory for what was, and now is, in store for humanity with the growing power of the CIA in the USA. 

The CIA brooms...splintered into thousands..nay, millions of robotic clones...carrying their buckets of water (information) are now literally on the march on the Internet...surveilling, collecting information on all our "devices"...out of control...mindless and soulless.  They threaten to drown us all in a torrent of superfluous information.  Privacy, like water, is essential to our species...but, just like water, it can be inverted, subverted and turned into a monstrous weapon.
