Rules for thee, but not for me, so sayeth the corporatocracy
The part that amuses me the most regarding public surveillance are the rather lengthy signs posted at the entrance of malls and supermarkets reminding consumers that its rules are for thee but not for me (the premises.) Cameras can and do routinely violate consumer privacy every which way by capturing and storing indefinitely visages, and yet consumers are not permitted to snap images of merch on shelves OR even wear (in most instances) hoodies (nevermind a mask.) Of course, none of this really matters until one of the hired cop wannabe thugs becomes a little bit too enthusiastic about enforcement and stomps on a face THEN the premises will immediately point to its posted signage and say, SEE! We told you so!
