Stateless Surveillance Networks

Friday, February 14th, 2014   Submitted by Levi Edwards

Private Residence UnderIn a stateless society the use of surveillance likely would be radically altered so as not to limit the freedom of the individual, but instead to optimize and secure it. Today, surveillance networks are generally regarded with ambivalence, and with good reason. However, the negative feelings they elicit are only logically justified by their possible misuse against innocent civilians by governments, not implicit in the nature of surveillance networks themselves. Considering safety is a universal concern, and surveillance systems are tolerated in our present society, I see no reason why they would not only be tolerated, but embraced in a stateless society.
