|08:01 am - are you abject enough?|
From Phillip Pullman on timesonline. (Click for full transcript.)
We want to watch you day and night
We think you are abject enough to feel safe when we watch you...
whoever does not want to be watched must have something shameful to hide
We want you to feel that solitude is frightening and unnatural
We want you to feel that being watched is the natural state of things
George Orwell got it right, didn't he? :/
Yeah, you're right! But at least CCTV isn't actually in our homes. Yet.
For the last few years, every time I've stepped foot outside the house I just assume that I might be being watched, filmed, and my activities noted, because I'm claiming benefits and it's part of the process. I do find it intimidating.
I had a friend who was a solicitor and she said she had been involved in some insurance cases she found rather frightening. Not only would the parties to a dispute be watched, she had discovered that the solicitors themselves in larger cases would be put under surveillance. She found it ridiculously stressful. But what could she do? It was entirely lawful. Eventually she left.
Actually, I've used some of that in a story. It's incredible what invasions of privacy you can pursue nowadays, totally lawfully.
