It's like you make a conscious effort to reduce reality to one liners. Every sentence some sort of concluding statement.

really not sure what j. edgar hoover has to do with, well, anything. we're not living in the cold war anymore with red scares. a far more relevant and germane thing to mention is the patriot act and post-9/11 homeland security, which represents a far bigger erosion of civil liberties and rights than anything hoover pushed through.

why is it interesting that the most useful tool is a video camera? the UK has far more closed-circuit cameras than the US -- are we a police state?

Pretty sure thats McCarthy, the US was effectively a Police state for a while, it could be again.

China looks great, make the wrong social media post and you're not allowed to travel by air or train.

There's always a 'scare' the state uses to keep the population scared and looking to authority to protect them.
Apaches, blacks, jews, reds, aliens, muslims - whats next?

A video camera is the most useful tool for the average citizen, prior to this the Police could lie and the state would protect them.
Its a lot harder now.

This guy would still have a job and be out assaulting cititzens but for video cameras.

The New York City police officer involved in the high-profile 2014 chokehold death of an African-American man has been fired.

Daniel Pantaleo was sacked over the death of Eric Garner, whose dying words "I can't breathe" became a rallying cry for protests against police brutality.

Its interesting to me that people have been pushed so far they're not just protecting themselves they're now actively picking arguments with Police on video. Some kind of turning point.
