You got to love Noam Chomsky

Briefed through the article Crisis and Hope by Noam Chomsky published in Boston Review.  While reading I saw this lovely piece of text:

If I want to get home from work, the market offers me a choice between a Ford and a Toyota, but not between a car and a subway. That is a social decision.

Sweden today – surveillance society

took the tram down town yesterday to team up with some old friends for dinner. At the tram I saw this nasty picture

Yup, the vehicle had a camera installed for surveillance.

Since it was a cold night and I didn’t want to freeze my poor head off I had my hood over my head. When entering the tram I didn’t take the hood off, because of the camera.

Does this make me more suspicious?

… the whole situation is a bit absurd. More cameras solve nothing.
