I wanted to share the following article from RT.com:
Britain looks into in-flight surveillance cameras
Human rights campaigners are alarmed in Britain over EU plans to install surveillance cameras on airplanes.
The project is aimed at preventing terrorism, but some believe more cameras will only further undermine democracy in the country that is already the
most watched in the world.

In your homes?
What do I think? I think that we're so fearful that the majority of the population will be able to be convinced that something like this is a good
If you haven't already read it, I highly suggest looking into the following thread which is very relevant to this discussion:
"The Global Meltdown of FEAR: Eliminated by 60+ visual aids."
I've steered the discussion in a certain direction with my questions but I want to stress that there are a lot of elements to this topic. Some
detail, article specific and other more global concerns.
How do we defend ourselves in airplanes?
Should we defend ourselves in airplanes or let others do it for us?
Is there some alternative to this method of safety? Can we initiate a pro-active defense or will we continue to go down these re-active methods of
fear, violence and the threat thereof?
Finally I would like to stress that the focus of this thread is on surveillance within airplanes, not the Iraq/Afghanistan war. While it is relevant,
please only make references in an effort to stay on target.
Also: please be kind, this is my first thread.
