People need to wake up
This is not to catch people breaking the law it is being slowly put in place to police to normal man. For years governments of the world are trying to make us stay indoors, High tax/increasing cost of living. Fear of attack, fear of the people we live around, it is working people are staying in rather than going out. At the very least outside socialising is being dramatically reduced.
But then where do our social interactions move to. Thats right the internet, with the advent of facebook, twitter second life, and other social gateways the governments need to try and control the information flow through them.
The old saying if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to worry about, 'yes you do'. We are being watched when we walk out of our house, how many camers in the UK have seen you today just going to work, shopping etc...
This can all be used to create a social blueprint of the UK/wold populous, it will allow better control as it matures. It all sounds very far fetched but how far off is it really..
