Okay, I think I’m starting to put together some rules for how to conduct myself in the new world we inhabit. I’m naturally an introverted and private person, so these will be a little hard for me to get used to, but I think it’s best if I get started on adapting to them now. Here are a few basic ones:
*Don’t do anything in your home that you wouldn’t want a drone to photograph. Yeah, I used to think of it as the “privacy” of my own home, but that turns out to be a silly delusion. Be on your best behavior, even in your bedroom. I’m guessing sex is still acceptable as long as it takes place under the covers.
*Don’t communicate anything on the Internet–this includes “private” e-mails–unless you would be prepared to share it with the Department of Homeland Security. Or the Chinese military.
*Don’t take a photograph unless you are okay with it being used in online advertising later on down the road. (Or just be completely asocial like me and don’t share your pictures with your friends).
*Don’t wear embarrassing underwear–you never know when it might get displayed on a body scanner.
I’m guessing there’s more that I’m missing here. As far as I know, my conversations aren’t being bugged and my thoughts can’t be read yet. I remember hearing that the Age of Aquarius was going to bring all of humanity much closer together. Is it wrong of me to feel that we are getting a little too close? I like to be able to keep some things to myself.
