Surveillance society

I'm working today so light posting until later. Here's something I've been meaning to post though, Why I don't have a cell phone. It's also why I don't want a GPS system in my car.

The government's surveillance powers under the Patriot Act are bad enough without giving them voluntary technological help and with Padilla effectively having destroyed due process, I don't think it's advisable for a political dissenter to be too trackable. They spy on Quakers you know.

I didn't know they spy on Quakers. Is that really true? Why?

I believe the ACLU turned up evidence that they were spying on Quakers, or more properly, Friends, when they received the FOIA documents on Patriot Act surveillance.

As to why, the Friends are one of the longest standing and most effective anti-war groups in the country.

Ah, now I understand. We can't have Friends undermining our government now, can we?
