Big Brother has become a major reality these days. I heard somewhere that the average person is video taped between 8 to 12 times each day. What’s really weird is that in Britain the norm is 300 times a day, now isn’t that just crazy? Makes me wonder why and how there is just a drastic change in the numbers between the two countries. That would be an interesting subject to research and do a paper on for school. But since I don’t attend school and don’t have any reason to believe that I’ll be attending any type of school it looks like I’ll just have to look around a bit online to do some research for my own curiosity.
I do know that I see more and more video cameras every where I look. Some places even have multiple monitor stands that are full of all of the monitors necessary to keep an eye on everyone, like at the mall or big office buildings. You know the type that they hire someone to sit there and keep a look out for shop lifters, out of control teenagers and now we have to worry about people going wacky and shooting up the place and as many people as they can before either turning the gun on themselves or trying to run and hide. I really think that if more people carried weapons/guns that there wouldn’t be so many of these random shootings. It isn’t that there is too many guns on the streets, it’s that there aren’t enough so that people can protect themselves when stuff like this happens.
