    The point wasnt the watching, it was the big brother.

    Also people need to read “Brave new world”.

          I try not to think about it early in the morning. It’s unnerving.

    I think Orwell was worried about authoritarianism and fascism.

    I’m pretty sure there was nothing about selfies in 1984.

    The key word here is ‘voluntarily’ and cameras are minor in comparison to the other privacy issues.

    When some people are released from prison they are forced to wear electronic tags which track their movements. And yet, we all voluntarily carry that and more around 24/7. Your average mobile is geo located to an accuracy of around 2m and still omits a signal even when switched off? And all because of an irrational fear of not being contactable.
