I'm on both sides of the see saw because I've seen what I saw.
with such instant transmission of sight and sound from any and every place that has cell capability, how can any government get away with foul play any more?
it may take a few more years to bring important coordinating sites on line...you know, like a cspan of the major urban streets or the real reality show of politicians saying sexist and racist stuff while there kid is standing close enough to get it in living color and sound.
on the one hand I dont like a society where Everything is on the record and open to interpretation outta context. a lot of innocent people will get hung when they're just goofing around. but the real bad guys will have no place to hide.
can you imagine if some CIA guy decided hey I'm gonna capture everything during interogations or secret meetings, lost it and it got picked up by some 14 year old who thought it would be really cool to put it up on youtube that night?
talk about transparency. that's the kind of transparency I'd like to see through. as long as it doesnt erode our behind closed doors individual privacty. but man what a line that is.
what individual? who gets privacy and who doesnt? who's to say? once something fundamental changes, can it be changed back? once we get all the gay issues "settled", what'll be next on the dont ask/dont tell agenda in america?
