[Update: my questions below were published to the NBR story online, however, NBR has moved this feature to NBR Radio; unfortunately NBR Radio has no way to jump forward, so you have to listen to every question, and after two attempts and wasting an hour of my life, I find my questions were never put to the Deputy Commissioner. I don't recommend you listen, the questions and answers are boring, irrelevant drivel; the important questions never asked. So to hell with it.]
Incidentally, the photo at the top of this post is not from George Orwell's 1984, it's from a street in England. Sadly, human societies again, under the auspices of the tax surveillance state, are organised under the snitch society trope.
