Hey everybody, it's silly hypothetical time again! The last thread was rather a landslide where nearly everyone would let the gubmint into their car before their computer. How about your bedroom and bathroom? Now we'll say there's some way the gubmint could fit cameras and audio recorders in your bedroom and your bathroom, they can see everything that goes on, from you on the potty to you in the shower to you shaving your bidness, they can watch while you sleep and listen while you have sex. They can see what pills you take, how long you primp in front of the mirror, and what you hide in your sock drawer. They can't necessarily look under the covers, but they have got night-vision in the cameras. They promise that none of that information would be used unless you commit a crime, but even if you do nothing wrong, they'll still have it. If you had to sacrifice your privacy in one of those, which one would you allow the gubmint to record? Even if it is, assume that your computer is not in your bedroom (or bathroom, you weirdo). Allowing them in your bedroom will not allow them in your computer. Replacing or using a different computer won't get the gubmint out, as they've gotten into all of them. They've got cameras in every bedroom and bathroom, so sleeping in someone else's bed won't help. You can't just sleep on the sofa in your living room, or that'll count as a bedroom and they'll get in there. You can't disable the monitors. Don't try anything clever! And yes, I'd join the riots too. But this is a silly hypothetical! In silly hypothetical, there are no riots! A. I'd keep my bedroom and bathroom privacy and let the gubmint watch me on the computer. B. I'd keep my computer privacy and let the gubmint watch me in the bedroom and bathroom. Poll'll be up in a minute.
