Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for September 26, 2014
Hello citizen. I'll be monitoring you on your walk today! Enjoy your safety. What? That's a violation of my privacy. If you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide. Everyone has something to hide and usually no one cares. By surveilling everyone you catch the benign breaches of law and taboo. If the public are all guilty, the executive part of the government can selectively enforce laws, essentially giving them both judicial and legislative power. Which defeats the whole point of separation of powers. So you're saying you have something to hide! Yes. I've been recording this conversation. That's a violation of my privacy!
