    "Now, the parade of horribles is that it's going to be used to track dissidents and lovers...that is, people already known and already imminently trackable because they are already known.  Ever hear of stalking?  It's really low tech.  Is there something besides a strain of Luddism at work here?"
    I guess we're supposed to ignore what happened to Occupy activists, since... stalkers. And Luddites.

    While I agree with LLCoaster when they said...

    "I'm not going to debate you, because our worldviews are simply too different."
    ...this person (and/or two or three others) post as many comments in surveillance related diaries as Ray P. If one leaves these specious, poorly reasoned justifications / dismissals unchallenged, someone out there will read that as community consensus - but the second you engage in head-to-brick-wall 'debate' with them, it ends up being a threadjack.

    I guess we just have to hope the average non-participating reader of these subjects can spot sophistry (such as comparing the technology in question to a phone listing) when they see it.

    Money speaks for money, the devil for his own... Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone?
