Kudos for brazenly saying what needs to be said and in such a creative way. As for those who think your time is better spent only scrutinizing America, well it's a globalized world, and our futures are shaped by backwards-thinking people both here and abroad. Your time is well spent irrespective of where your target lives or hails from.

Ann---We have serious human rights issues here in America. They are secret and government sponsored. Many have lost everything including their lives and those of loved ones due to the use of these technologies upon them. Are you brave enough to tackle that issue? You could use the Wash. Post article on Harlan Girard done quite some time ago as your reference. Even you Ann could have an electronic collar around your mind and never know it.

Another issue you might take up are the government satellites that can see into some one's home or basement that Bush allowed local police departments to have direct access too. It is still being done just in a different way. An article was written about that in the Wash Post also that you could use as a reference. I know of people who never did a criminal or immoral thing in their life until they went under surveillance. How can our government explain why that might be. No one should ever be controlled or manipulated by any means. Here in America we prefer to make or encourage woman to show everything and become involved with ugly people and lifestyles that they will not benefit from in the future. I am aware of women who have had this done to them just so those individuals responsible could watch and entertain themselves. There was never any justification for this surveillance from the beginning.

There are serious violations of Human and Civil Rights here in America that need to be exposed and the use of them terminated.
