In RL we can make private comments to friends and they understand what we mean and the government doesn't come knocking at our door. But on the
internet there're very few places anymore where it's PRIVATE. You can't say anything anywhere without somebody recording your conversation and using
it later. They're not your friends and won't understand where you're coming from.
There should be some laws about privacy. Of course, if she posted this comment in a public section, she deserves the consequences. But I think that
there needs to be privacy on the internet.
I'm going to make a prediction. It's this.... We will have thought reading software and hardware in the future that will be in place in public places
to detect criminals and other malcontents. The reason that thought reading software won't breach privacy laws is because there will be none. People
will no longer think adverse thoughts and will no longer think in separate terms. So the idea that their thoughts are broadcast to others will not
bother them. If they could see this world - the one we live in right now - they would think we're savage and divided. They would wonder how our
society even functions since there's so much adversity. They'll just assume that's the way history always is.
Our mental and even social freedoms will be coming to an end and we'll go along with it. We'll go along with it because we'll think ti's better, safer
and more responsible.
