OK - here is a thing about asthma, triggered by one LJ friend. It illustrates the problem technology poses. On the one hand, it can be useful in well-regulated hands. On the other, um, hand, it can be perfect fodder for the far-right insistence that a NWO government conspiracy is trying to track everything we do, and control everything we do, so corporations will take everything we own. Guess what. Both views are CORRECT! I know that seems hard to believe - but it all relies on you and me, making sure that these things are regulated, and taken to court, and voted on or against! We were put here to forever sort out ambiguity and if you don't like that you can turn back into a turtle.
