After reading the article by Yesil about governmental surveillance, my opinion on the matter started changing a little bit. I guess you could say I didn't have much of an opinion about it before but now I'm starting to really oppose the idea of surveillance. When people would talk about the government storing all of my texts somewhere, I just thought, "well maybe they'll get a kick out of my texts", never really thinking I had anything to worry about. Now I'm starting to feel likes since we are under surveillance, what if they think I'm up to something I'm not? I don't fear public cameras, but maybe that means I could be caught on one just looking suspicious. Like Yesil said (which makes perfect sense), the bad people are going to be the ones NOT on camera, they are going to stay away from the cameras. The only thing the cameras are going to do now is speculate many things that are never even going to happen.
Another reason why I don't like the idea of all of the cameras in public places is that the less public places will become more dangerous. To me that's a scarier thought because if you live in a big city but live in a more closed-off area, you might experience a lot more crime.
The last reason I don't like the idea of too much surveillance is because I think it moves the world in a bad direction. I just foresee a horrible kind of life where we almost have to act robotic in public in order to let the government know for sure we aren't doing anything wrong.
