However I do have an unpopular opinion: ****ing go for it, I don't care. If they want to watch me have a **** on the toilet or wank to weird porn through my webcam, go for it. If it means noone can get away with crimes like theft because we have police drones patrolling everywhere then 10/10 go for it because what I am fed up with more than anything is all the ****ty crime we have in the country these days. Can't leave your posessions anywhere without them being stolen. Can't leave your door unlocked. Can't leave your laptop on your car seat. it ****s me off, you have to spend your life remembering that everywhere you go their is some chav **** waiting to ruin your day. So yeah if mass surveillance means zero crime then cool. It's not like they literally sit in some secret government building watching your every move. Math tells you that much. 70m citizens and a few hundred people sat in GCHQ ? it's literally impossible.
A police state doesn't reduce crime, just look at China. That being said I'm like you with that form of privacy. Any and all info that can be collected will be collected the instant our devices hit the net. It's no different than phones being tapped back in the day, only in this case info can be sent out without you knowing. Windows, Google, social media, Android, iOS, game launchers, anything and everything makes you check a box saying it's ok to send statistical "anonymous data".

Wiretaps the cops had to come up with a warrant at least. The modern surveillance state is constantly recording everyone with gps, mic, and camera that everyone carries with them everywhere.


GHCQ doesn't need many analysts because their cams use artificial intelligence. If they are looking for someone/something, they can search after the fact, it's easy.


I have seen pics of people with a mask throwing burning tires over the street cams to destroy them in england, and the gov't has them replaced by the next day.


Glad I don't live there.
