you shouldn't be up to naughty business anyway.
And who decides what is and isn't "Naughty"?
I'm pretty sure proper action and behavior befitting someone in a PUBLIC space is something that gets taught beginning in childhood, where by the time
most people are seven years old, they have enough restraint to resist killing whoever they please, taking what does not belong to them, defacing
public and private property, and presenting themselves as a general rule how one typically expects someone to present themselves befitting public
Regarding legality, local, domestic, and national laws are of relevance everywhere.
Most places frown on people urinating, or defecating in public.
Some more progressive minded municipalities have smoking bans in public areas.
In Singapore you can get caned or have other physical remediation enacted on you for all sorts of seemingly minor things like having chewing gum.
Islamic national boundaries seem to enjoy cutting parts of people off that have caused offense for whatever reason, whether it's an eye, a tongue, a
hand, or other parts.
Some other places are more tolerant.
Cap d'Agde, a seaside town in France is dominantly nude. You can do your banking, grocery shopping, or anything else socially publicly acceptable in
Amsterdam is well known for many legalized activities and services that are otherwise punishable by fines and imprisonment elsewhere in the world.
Whatever the case, it all really depends on where you are, and where you choose to be.
If you don't like where you're at, you can always move?
Regardless of any of this, with cameras in public, it's public areas. So what?
Certainly many will want to start foaming at the mouth and getting out of sorts about an Orwellian future becoming reality, but, when it comes to
that, many are are in actuality openly and willingly doing it to themselves just by owning a cell phone, which can easily be turned into any national
or federal government's personal spy device.
The Orwellian future depends on private monitoring inside of people's private places of residence.
You do this to yourselves by taking a cell phone with you every where you go.
What's also fun is the ironic level of Groupthink, another proposed item detailed in George
, that is evident in this thread.
How many of you are part of the Groupthink, echoing and expressing the same exact view as someone else without the least bit of original content added
to this conversation?
If you have issues with privacy:
1. Don't go out in public
2. Don't invite any and every government agency into your private life by carrying a cell phone.
3. Don't get onto conspiracy websites that might, or might not be monitored and logged.
4. Educate yourself about how to obtain privacy and what legal privacy actually is.
5. Invest in RF jamming equipment (for as little as $30 online) and learn how to use it.
6. Learn how to maintain your privacy online, as well as everywhere else.
Don't blame me for the cameras.
Don't blame me for not minding or really caring at all about cameras in public places.
I know there's much worse things to protest about than just some silly cameras, most of which people are willingly doing to themselves through social
programming with concepts such as 'convenience', entitlement, and other Westernized paradigms of social expectation that fall into the groupthink
Further, if this is such an issue, get involved with political interest groups and your local/state/regional governments such to make your voice
Protesting about it on a conspiracy website does nothing.
Join a privacy advocacy group and make your voice count.
