We go about our daily lives, not realizing how often we are being observed. High definition cameras placed at banks, government buildings, highways and toll booths, street intersections, shopping malls and public areas have infiltrated our public spaces. This technology has imperceptibly entered our lives and we hardly notice it.
Along with cell phone GPS location our movements can be tracked by an anonymous third party without our even knowing it.
All the data will soon be shared into a centralized database, and along with emerging facial recognition technology, we will be living in a world not unlike Orwell’s dystopian vision of Big Brother.
Ostensibly for our safety and convenience, this surveillance amounts to a major loss of our freedom unless laws are passed limiting their use.
