I was chatting with my fellow employess when the traffic camera topic came, up and one employee stated "What do you care unless you are doing something wrong" . I responded with do you care if they come by your house and use infrared cameras to look at you inside your house, would that be OK? And I get the same response," what are you doing something your not supposed to"? Does anybody get it? I tried to explain how our personal liberties are being destroyed one at at time. They all looked at me like I'm crazy!!! I gave up and tried not to call them sheep, but it slipped....

Dont worry. Most of the people here won't get it either.

Stand over his shoulder for a couple hours and watch everything he does. When he complains, ask him if he's doing anything wrong.

If you ever had any doubt about your coworkers' competence before, you've now had it thoroughly confirmed and all doubt removed.

THIS.

Only thing I can think to add is to bring a notepad and write down everything he does.

I believe the infrared camera pointed at the house already had some legal challenges. I don't see where that would be proof of loss of individual liberties.

Then hopefully they'll have to prove the need for the system, and not the other way around.

They way things are going, sooner or later everything will be illegal... and we'll all have something to hide.

Of course, by then, all the cameras will be in place already.

Typical. They think "it can't happen to me, I'm one of the good guys" and this only happens to people doing something wrong.

Everyone is doing something wrong. It's unavoidable now.

I think it's time to have all the bathroom stall doors removed.

They could be doing DRUGS in there or something. It's for the children.

The village just installed a few of those locally. Fuckin rat bastards...

[edit]
But it is for the greater good of the children

Actually, I think they discovered a grow operation and the USSC said no, no you can't.

Anyway - Panopticon - google it.
