How the hell did THIS get allowed?!!

And this debate occurred only 7 months ago. I have a feeling if it's already been considered, it's already been designed.

“He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future.”

I do not trust any government enough to safeguard such details, and fear the power of such details in the hands of a more sinister government in the future.

I've had this debate many a time before, and generally people fail to understand that the danger isn't necessarily immediate. Our government is not particularly evil. The real implications are in a future where holding this information has become the norm, and using it more and more gradually leads to a society cornered and frustrated, but left powerless, by its rulers.

I suppose the only hope in such a future is also tucked away in 1984; the behaviour of cornered and frustrated mammals.
