That's a good idea, though I'm sure you guys in the UK are used to all of this surveillance and intrusion into the mind, so to speak. With that
being said, I'm sure that sunglasses will only warrant harassment if you happen to walk by one of these scanners wearing them. On the bright side, at
least you'll know that your eyes aren't being read 'out of the blue'.
What scares me even more, if this technology is readily available and the government is testing it out in the open, just think what they aren't
telling us they are using, if anything at all. It's hard for me to believe that they don't have secret programs, using secret technology to track
A couple of years ago, I read on the MSM somewhere, though the story was quickly dropped, about government databases and how the government is mining
consumer information to profile citizens and storing it all in some secret database somewhere. For instance, they would log whether you picked a
window or isle seat in the aircraft, what kind of drink you like, whether it be a pepsi, sprite, old charter or 7 and seven and put into some database
somewhere to psychologically profile us in an effort to catch terrorism before a strike. This program was apparently started by the Bush admin and
kept alive by the Obama admin.
If you think about it, such a scenario is scary, to say the least. What if you fit the profile of a terrorist, yet you aren't? Do they throw you in a
secret prison somewhere and torture you until you confess to something that isn't true, or do they just ruin your career by placing you on the no-fly
list? It really does make one stop and think before each little purchase or choice we make. Those choices can literally ruin us, by the government
that is supposed to be by, for and of us.
If you think about it, a free society isn't supposed to resemble something like this. When the population has stop and think of the repurcussions of
ordering a drink, the words "freedom" or "liberty" simply become useless buzzwords.
