  •  This business is a criminal's dream, isn't it? (6+ / 0-)

    Unwatched watchers, with today's tech, can tell when children are home alone or where they are unattended on their routes; they can tell when a home is empty and when the neighbors aren't around; uncover blackmailable, if not illegal activities; pick up insider tips from every business person; and I imagine a whole lot more.

    The old "you have nothing to hide if you aren't doing anything wrong" falls before "you have to hide everything if people intend to do you wrong."

    Maybe we should have a Constitutional Convention, see if we can get an Amendment which would make people secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. And it would apply to business as well as government, even when you can't tell the difference.

    Today, if you exist... that's already suspicious.
