Well to quote the words of one Ronnie Biggs 'No one is innocent'. By that quote I mean we are all guilty in small ways of breaking minor laws we
dont even know exist.
Ever walked on the grass when it says 'keep off'?
Ever got more change than your supposed to from a purchase and not mentioned it?
Ever Been drunk in a public place..?
These are of course just random examples and not things I do or have done on a regular basis. The point I'm making is a simple one. Handing control
to a goverment in any country is a big thing, because your not just handing control over to the current goverment, but future ones as well.
No one can say what is around the corner politically in any country 20 years from now with absolute certainty. Maybe another Hitler type figure
marching people off into death camps? Maybe not, I can't see the future and if anyone can...they aren't saying.
I dont commit crimes, take drugs..hell right now I dont even drink. I'm a polite standard member of society. Does that make me 'innocent and have
nothing to fear'? No, no one is innocent. Thats my view and I have to say I dont like the idea of anyone knowing exactly where I am and what I'm
doing every second of the day.
I value my privacy not because I have anything to hide (although I'm certain everyone has at least one thing they wouldn't want the whole world to
know about), but rather because I like to have times when I can be confortable in my own thoughts and self without any concern about being monitored
Granted with camneras on streets becoming more and more prevelant to some degree you are montired anyway, but why should I make it so I HAVE to be?
Should I make it easy for any future political nutcase that may or may not appear? I think not.
