Funny that we don’t seem to care about civil liberties. I think this is the flip side of my “treat us like honest citizens” argument. Most of us are honest (mostly) law-abiding citizens. So we don’t notice CCTV and other tracking, because it doesn’t affect us (save in extreme circumstances).

The liberty groups are right – we probably don’t need the level of surveillance we do have (as there is no proof that CCTV decreases crime rates or increases solving rates). However, if we aren’t affected by it, then we don’t really care.
