Actually and sadly Barbie it has always been easy to keep tabs on the masses for Totalitarian States. They use fear, which is the greatest weapon of all, to make sure people are so frightened of something that they will suspend all rationale and will turn in their own mothers. Add some secret police and the majority of your countries resources to intel and boom you got your self a full fledged police state.
Imagine the U.S. using these tried and true techniques with our advanced technology and it really starts to get scary.
