Between satellites, cell phones, and other cameras we now have a world that is constantly under total surveillance, or near total surveillance.
Certainly, any area with significant population and technology can be potentially watched or listened to.
So, we have a situation where governments and also major corporations (AT&T for example) have access to live feeds of almost any location on Earth.
This is a trend that promises to increase as more people buy more sphisticated phones and networks are improved.
Following this logic, a surveillance state becomes inevitable, and is actually probably in existence currently.
My proposal is that a website be made available, accessable to the public, where any location on Earth can be watched live. If the government has
unlimited access to watch the people, then the people should have unlimited access to watch the government.
Crime could theoretically be reduced drastically, eveyone would be held completely accountable for actions.
People would be honest.
In a world where the vast majority believe in God, isn't God always watching anyway? It shoudln't matter who is watching you. A person who is
confident in their character and self shouldn't really have a problem being observed by anyone. Keeping any type of secret is poision to mentality.
Is privacy more important than accountability when a government threatens to have total control and access of citizens? The only way to retatin some
liberty is to put those in power under surveillance in equal amounts to the genral population, and provide universal access.
