The Battle for Privacy

It’s starting to look like George Orwell’s 1984 or Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, if you really pay attention to the world of tech. This battle for privacy has been going on longer than we’ve been paying attention to it. Eventually, if the federal government has their way, what privacy could be left when it comes to the technology that withstands yet borders the boundaries of constitutional rights? Televisions oftentimes come with web-cameras, cellular phones have GPS tracking on them, the world of tech could be used in menacing and malicious ways if there are no restrictions on the sacristy of privacy.
