UK is 'not a surveillance state' insists minister defending police face recog tech


Problem with surveillance is its almost always used to gain unfair advantage.

if everybody can surveil anybody at any time ,anonymously , without censor surveillance could be justified. That would level the playing field.

Because then no one would have any advantage over anyone else.

anyting one part of society has .all the rest of society should have in order to maintain balance of power, and natural motivation to tread lightly when doing anything that can affect others.
