1984

A while back I posted a question/opinion about how I thought we should do away with privacy laws. [nightstogether] was kind enough to refer me to 1984 by George Orwell as an illustration of what life might be like without our precious privacy.

While I still think we'd be better off with less privacy than have nowandays, there are certainly situations in which it is warranted. As with most things it is a case where neither black or white is the way to go but a shade of gray somewhere in the middle.

I do highly recommend Orwell's 1984 to anyone who has not read it yet. It is a warning to all of what could potentially happen if we are not careful with the power with which we entrust to our government. Thanks again to [nightstogether] for the recommendation! I'm sure he will make an excellent chief of police.

Remember, Big Brother is watching
