anyone ever read 1984?????? wtf....
"At the age of six[comrade ogilvy] early, by special relaxation of the rules, had joined the spies. At nine he had been a troop leader. At the age of
eleven he had denounced his uncle to the thought police after overhearing a conversation which appeared to him to have criminal tendencies....He had
no subjects of conversation except the principles of Ingsoc...and the hunting down of spies, saboteurs, thoughtcriminals and traitors, generally"
---excerpt from 1984 by George Orwell...
now I know this isn't as extreme or drastic as the transcript. However it is my opinion that it is laying the foundation for similar outcome.
While I believe that the safety of children are important, I believe the focus should be in teaching children to be aware of how they can get
themselves in such a situation. Teaching the parents to properly educate their children on how not to put themselves in situations which would allow a
predator or ''cyber frauds'' to have any leverage in any situation.
However, sometimes the human brain gets programmed into a certain pattern which would cause a child to actively seek out attention in less than
desirable ways and actual psychological therapy is needed instead of education.
we have a lot of work to do, but I don't think using children to catch ''predators'' is the answer, and my intuition tells me this method is a
multibird killing rock.
