Not everybody cares enough to look into this to even bother telling their children about it.
Children can't just opt out of flying when they're family is going somewhere.
Not everybody can afford to drive cross-country, or cruise over-seas.
These aren't going to stop at airports, the people pushing them have been saying for years that they want to put them everywhere where "security"
is an "issue."
Football stadiums, courthouses, amusement parks, the post office, state borders, and on and on and on...
How many thousands of people said it was crazy to think that cell phone text messages would be kept?
How many times were we told our email archives wouldn't be sold?
What makes you think that something like nude images would be any different?
Why do you hold airport personal at such high esteem that they'd never do something immoral?
You really think those guys/ladies are somehow morally immaculate? They'd never
think bad thoughts about anyone
, and they'd never sell
exclusive celebrity nudes or images of children for big bucks, because they're perfectly nice, good people. All of them. Nothing to worry about,
everybody but them terrorists loves us, right?
You're in denial. Snap out of it.
