“78% of Americans welcome video cameras”
Says CBS/NYT Poll
Well fine. Lets fit those 78% volunteers with permanent video cameras and then the thought police will only have to worry about us 22%
“If video feeds are so great, why not add audio? If you can stand being watched whenever you leave home, surely you won’t mind if every word is heard as well. And how about a tiny drone hovering over your front door, round the clock — for the rest of your life? “ How about more more like the concept trailer for the Grey State.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gy7FVXERKFE. If the drone is out side your door how long before it comes in. Look up The Securitate. The Romanian secret police, sort of a little brother of the Stasi. It was run by Nicolae CeauÈescu a meglomaniacal dictator. One of the last things they were tasked to do before the whole system collapsed was have every phone in Romania not only monitored while in use but be designed to selectively monitor conversations in the home when the phone sat idle. If you nothing to hide comrade why should you object? Fortunately collapse occurred and the Army sided with the people when they couldn’t take being starved and frozen to death anymore.
Great show, though...
