Remember that DMSO guy? That they drew his blood and everyone started passing out? Wouldn't stop someone like that. He could always get on the
plane and bite him/herself.
That case was always weird.
I just don't understand why basic control over who sees my naked body isn't considered to be more basic a right. Furthermore, a lot of religions
teach people to be modest about their bodies, to value modesty, and here's the govt. saying "Let's see it Mr. and Mrs. Smith." I dunno bout
In practical application, would they have male folks looking at males, and female looking at females, and hopefully no one looking at kids....and
infants? And then I'd just have a LOT of questions about storage and retrieval of the scans, and screening of the monitors...and what happens when
someone claims harrassment or embarrassment - when someone goes through that thing with some anomaly and the monitor says Hey Sam you gotta see this!
and the workers all go look, and Mr. Smith files a lawsuit because his wife gets humiliated.
And if we do accept scanners that strip search us virtually, how long until we accept the wireless tasers that they would really like to put on us
I remember some ol' sci fi show - Star Trek I think - in which there was a place where if you dared step off the sidewalk, you'd be wirelessly
Total control. That's what they want, even if they don't know it - and that's what a lot of US want too - we WANT the govt to control all those
other peolple that we secretly hate and fear - even if we don't actually know them, heck, because we don't know them that makes it worse! - and
that's where it will go, total control, if we let them take us there.
I think that's reason enough alone to say, hey, wait a minute here...
