I think the gov has been watching for a long time.


I KNOW the corporations have been watching - and pooling their footage and tracking info. fyi - Economic control is way tighter and cruel than other methods.

That is the problem, this should never be allowed on free countries, this is population control under the umbrella of for you good, the nation and the littler children, we are indeed been ruled by a corporate dictatorship that their primary goal is not safety and security, but profits and control, the rest is a the propaganda scheme to make it all sound good and acceptable you want it or not.

So out of curiosity, what does total surveillance in and of itself pose as a risk? You have to add things to it to make it harmful no? Like if they decided to alter the videos for whatever reason to make it look like you committed a crime? Or if sometime down the road IF they make certain strange things illegal like going to church or mosque? Just the surveillance piece by itself doesn't really bother me. I would feel safer to tell you the truth... mainly because I don't commit crimes and it would protect me against those who do.


Let me ask -

While you have no expectation of privacy in public, what happens when surveillance, at the right angle, can see inside a window in your house? Or business?

This has been an ongoing issue in London where their camera systems have been able to se4e inside windows.

I think proper legislation could dissuade misuse while putting civilians at ease. The other possibility would be to allow the system to be viewed by anyone, law enforcement, civilian....

The issue there might be based on national security grounds...


What's a happy median?

A cool thing about this capability , the upcoming google glass type tech , and bionic implants, would be for future civilizations to observe the past and history.

Imagine had our early ancestors had this, researching family genealogy, even your own life.

Then after 2 life spans everyone would be given access to jump from video to video.

Not advocating this capability but it definitely has some potentials as well.

If it doesn't bother you...what were to happen if this technology got into the hands of the next Hitler or Stalin?

You don't think there will be a next one of those? Of course there will. History repeats itself.

Well...that would be one bright side of it, wouldnt it? Interesting. Hadnt thought of that. "How did this giant building come to be?" "Well, lets look at what Google recorded at that point in time".

This reminds me of a discussion I had with a lady at an airport before our daily grope from TSA. She said she feels so much safer now that we are screened and checked. I told her, how many freedoms is it worth giving up for the illusion of safety? The fact that 5 people armed with box cutters hijacked planes full of 100's of people is embarrassing.

I despise big brother, nanny state, or anything else that restricts or hampers freedoms. There has to be a line somewhere. Where is it?

If you consider that they often fail to do security checks on the airplane clean-up-crew, the entire security is a farce. There is no such thing as "total security" except in the minds of totalitarians.

I don't require "total security", life is risky. I`d prefer some freedom.

Where is the line drawn? Totalitarians arent happy until everything is under complete control (which is never).

I quit watching after a few episodes because of the underlying message.


Yes you are right, i stopped watching it also after 2 or 3 episodes. We are going to loose all of our privacy. Scary thought, good luck to the world.

What a bunch of Gl@ssholes, lol.

Also I'm sure one of the benefits of all this surveillance will be that ALL our insurance rates will be coming down right , since fraud will be decreased. /Sarcasm

"Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one."
Benjamin Franklin

I do not like this at all, is it really that bad in the US where the TPTB have to spy upon simply going about our daily activities?

This scares me.

You know, I get really tired of hearing that stupid line as a justification of a survielance state. "You have no expectation of privacy in public", is a huge leap to we have the right to videotape your every move in public.

When out and about in public I have no expectation of privacy. Places like the bank, grocery store, department stores etc, typically have video cameras and are recording for security measures.

However, when I'm sitting in my backyard minding my own business, I do have an expectation of privacy.
