Erasing privacy rights using this as some kind of excuse is ridiculous. With this principle, why don't I come over to your house and peer in the windows all day? Maybe walk in and go through your computer whenever I feel like it? What, you don't trust me? You have something to hide? You can't trust people with this power, even (especially) if they are getting paid by the government.
You think your kids never snuck out in their teens?
Responsible parent or naive?
Playing devils advocate here as I never snuck out in my teens, never had to I just told them where I was going in the middle of the night.
But you're acting like you have utter control and it's good that it has worked out for you, but in actuality you are never in control it's just the illusion of control.
You can't control anything external from yourself.
Yes..... obviously it's you being a responsible parent that never caused some psychopath to kidnap your kids. No you just aren't in the small percentage of people that happens too.
Yes because that's the same thing. An aerial view is exactly like peering through my window. Believe me I understand what you are saying, it's a slippery slope, but I'm ok with these types of things as long as there are limits.Edited by PappaSmurfsHarem - 4/15/14 at 10:47am
