Quote from budcampbell:
With the ever rising police state and surveillance in the "good ol' USA", government has a vested interest in it's development (the internet) and keeping social media such as Facebook rockin'.
The gov't did advance their capacity to wiretap Americans in the last decade under the guise of protection from terrorism, and yes, it is a bit worrisome. Not exactly in 1984 proportion, but could get that way.
Implanting chips in babies with SS numbers? Good or bad? Helped with monitoring from abduction, but is that where we really want to go as a society? I'm honestly not sure. GPS for everyone's car and phone is already a done deal, and since so many won't go anywhere without their phone, well, the gov't doesn't have to do much.
We'll see, hopefully the civil liberties people will come up with something.
