On Surveillance

Thinking about little microphones and cameras all over your house and neighborhood is a creepy and enraging thing; this idea that someone may be recording my every noise and move for current or future viewing. Raise your hand if you find something like that unjustifiably invasive, unethical, and, dare I say, evil. Does it even matter who it is? Who would choose to live like that? Who would consciously choose to allow their every breath to be recorded and reviewed over the course of their entire life? Of course those who chose to believe in deity chose to live like this every day. God is watching us, as it were. And that’s today’s two cents.
