It’s in a safe space though John Blaise Lent. It’s a controlled environment among peers who share the same values. That’s what makes it work in that case.
That said, there’s some truth to it. Florida has Sunshine Laws, which are rather strict and simple. Basically, everything’s public record. The cops. The judges. The politicians and the people.
Came from NJ and you know how privacy obsessed NJ.
Between the two, Florida’s got the better idea.
It keeps cops more honest too. They’re under just as much surveillance. The bad ones are getting rooted out. Hopefully it’ll leave the good ones behind.
That’s politics buy people out. Make friends. Family connections, etc. Happens in every organization.
I gave up on most privacy in 2002 when Google acquired Altavista’s Usenet archives and the stupid shit I said in the early 90s online was exposed. I got them to delete the stupid shit thankfully but it was my woke moment.
I get to watch other people get their woke moments daily. “Oh no, they shared my post out of this secret group!” “Oh, the huamanity!”. I just chuckle.
I’m not anti-privacy. I prefer privacy. but is the govt looking at me through my webcam or a hacker? Are they observing me through my phone? Well, they’re not because I see data flow and not-flow. But even if they were, they’d be bored awfully quickly.
Accountability for people in charge of other people is key.
Bell Curve is part of the problem. Generations have gone through a school system that taught to “norms”. It messed up society in a big way.
Illusion of normalcy. There *is* normalcy but it’s got a much much wider spectrum and includes illnesses and things because everybody’s got _something_.
