I guess you havent heard of the record option and that you can request your CCTV from specific cameras in and around London if you can identify which one you were at. There used to oppress. Thats all. To instill fear into people and make them walk a straight line every second. Might as well move to China or North Korea cause all there leaving you with is Free Speech. Oh wait CCTV records those that express those rights as well and theyll come back after you later.
I just hope some enterprising young folks are in a basement even as we discuss, figuring a way to blind or bring down these new government toys.  Blinding is more likely.  The device(s) would become as popular as CB radios and radar detectors in the 70s  :w00t:

Striking a tone more of resignation than endorsement, Bloomberg said that our future includes more visibility and less privacy.
But what he doesn't say is that is because the politician/control freaks along with the manufacturers of drones are shoving them down our throats.  Drones are a choice, not an inevitability.  He lies.

Face recognition will be integrated into the drone surveillance, and he wondered aloud whether a drone is that much more invasive than someone standing outside your home.
My suggestion is that there should be people standing outside of his home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  They should not tell him why exactly they are standing out there, perhaps if he asks they can say it's no more invasive than being watched by cameras or drones.

There is actually a huge difference between cameras hanging on buildings and drones.  Cameras hanging on buildings are privately owned and are there to provide security and safety for the tenants of that building.  A drone is owned by nebulous government agencies to keep guard over the average citizen just to make sure he's not involved in wrong-doing, defeating the premise of inoccent until proven guilty.

Drones effectively make us prisoners in our own cities under constant scrutiny.

Then be posed in the media as a terrorist and have your words and actions twisted and demonised.

People have gone around after 9/11 asking people questions about sacrificing their liberties. Many of them had no objection whatsoever.

Satellites and drones can see CLOSE UP .  We might as well have cops ,or a multitude of other officials, with anti-gravity belts floating through our yards.

My favorite part is where it's inevitable.
It's inevitable that we grow old.  It's inevitable that the USA will one day be a second rate power and not a super power.  It's inevitable that volcanoes will erupt.  It's inevitable that it will rain in Seattle and snow in Juno.  It's not inevitable that we live in an invasive security state, prisoners of some nebulous big brother tyrant control freak.

It's for the children. It's likely that all of these varied items and objects will combine into a linked grid of control and power. The final product could be called The Beast. Who needs Big Brother when you have Lil' Bloomberg?

There is one reality with billions of versions.

I wouldn't go that far. He might have good intentions, but his statism is a step in the wrong direction.
