1. Do you think pornography is dangerous? Why, or why not?
No. Maybe some of the people who use pornography are dangerous, but in the end, it’s just a bunch of pictures.
2. What do you think about people being held in jail without charges, without access to a lawyer, or a phone call for an indeterminate period of time?
I suppose the authorities might have good reason (in their mind) to do so, but I find it a bit too totalitarian. I would definitely want to know what sort of suspicion they had about me.
3. How do you feel about this US program?
All I can think of is: Isn’t there a better alternative? How will the government agencies handle the amount of information from a couple million informants? And since these are just ordinary citizens, how are they sure that something looks like suspicious activity. How are you going to trust common sense when the next door neighbor’s only feeling depressed and not building a bomb in his basement?
