Orwell’s 1984 cometh

It seems that George Orwell’s predictions of a population under surveillance is becoming a reality.

If cameras work on my street, they’ll soon spread to yours – and, eventually, the whole city. That’s what’s happened in England, the Big Brother capital of the world, where they now have one surveillance camera for every 14 people.

A report by Britain’s privacy commissioner said Britons are liable to be filmed 300 times a day – from their apartment’s lobby-cam to endless street-cams, bank-cams, office-cams and probably dental-cams – right until they’re back in their bedroom. And who knows then?

Does anybody care?
