I think this debate is kind of blown out of context. The government isn't watching us, just wiretapping us.

Besides, this has nothing to do with books.

Ya, the topic questions are not even comprehensible.
I suppose someone should discuss the positives of
camera use such as in identifying criminals who flee
scenes of crimes unidentified.
I am up in the air on this debate, but I think it has more to do
With etiquette than on actual big brother fears.
If you are in public space, or on someone else’s private property
They do have the right to tape you.
What is the difference between someone filming people
On their cell phone and a bank having a surveillance camera?
While I think it is all distasteful, in reality I think it serves
More good than harm. The good I can communicate, the harm is abstract.
