Steve, I can see what you are say. I appear overzelous at times, and this may be one of those times.
When I feel passionate about a topic, and in the negative to it, I let it fly, just so as there is no question to how i feel. As I would in the positive. Its emotional not logical and another side of the human existance.
With the emergance of computers, many people in our society today feel they can left brain approach a problem and solve it by control and totally forget about abstract things, and get into human compassion, which includes trust, respect, love, understanding as subsets, and basically resolves into human compassion overall.
I see to much emphasis on non-trust actions by people, Black Boxes for traffic violations is just the stepping stone for a database to track where you are at all times, imprisonment before commiting a crime, desguised as a social control or latter still a marketing tool, however, all in the same.
People need to step away from their computers, get out and enjoy they day, enjoy life, and try to bring love and compassion into those lives that are upset by the way societal pressures are driving them, not add more pressures, we got enough. Too much.
If you look back through time, in my experience I can only go back to the early 70's, the perceptions of freedon have dwindled over time, you can see it in peoples faces and actions. People are so boxed in now days because they all know or perceive the efficiency of information that drives their actions which is not to far from robots and cattle on a ranch.
I am so sick of being farmed by others, and seeing others farm others, that i have to speak out strongly against this idea. I feel I am incapable of speaking out strongly enough against "black boxes" so all i can express is outrage. I can only pray we have compassionate people in congress who know well of the federalist papers, and the right to live. So we have swung far left, under the clinton admin, now we swing far right under bush admin, to look for balance is pointless and boring, and all their truely is, is difference, diversity, and different points of view, which is great! but missing a few things, fun! love! joy! life.
by the way, the speed limits are too slow. I think, for those that want to drive 100+ m.p.h. should be allowed to do so and a seperate highway built for them, so they don't mix with the status quo who prefer to drive 65-55. Now if the constitution were to be honored, America would have its Autobauns, under the constitutional rights of admendment one, freedom of speech, which can also be interpreted as freedom of choice, but in driving sense, we do not have freedom to choose a road thats is desginated "Any speed you want use at your own risk." Many people in America are capable of driving high speeds but are hindered by law. Many people want to drive high speeds on a road designed for that purpose only where people who prefer to drive slower should be required by law to keep off.
So Mike Jones sees the need for control, which is true, in highly conjested areas, where high speed would be ridiculous. However, the methodology pretty much violates and intrudes upon an area regarded now as 1 of the last two fronteirs of privacy, the automobile, and the home. Men and women need privacy to reflect their actions in public. Each of us need our own space, because we all are different in our thoughts and beliefs. Pooling people together always leads to differences, and agreements, and creates a dynamic enviornment or all varying experiences. Mostly now days it just gets violent. As a body of people we have to accept violence is part of us, and not try to stamp it out by kulling it out of our society. Violence is energy needing to be redirected.
i'm getting carried away again....
I still stand that black boxes suck, and i can see the real motivation behind black boxes in vehicles, which is a power postion device for government, large corporations, marketing analyists, and states to collect revenues off of their constituents in a forceful manner, in stead of earning it. Mayberry said, "The vikings got tired of traveling to town to pilage it, so they just moved in, set up government, declared themselves protectors, and pillaged it every day. They haven't left since."
so theres your government.
of course, this is just my opion and what i believe, which i'm sure you don't, but hey thats me.
