I hate replying to myself, but since we don't have a way to edit...
The ones with the cameras have the power. Governments with CCTV have power. Corporate overlords with CCTV have power.
Protesters recording police abuses have power if they record it, but if they don't record it usually they lose.
Activists recording business abuses have power when challenged since they can expose problems, but no recordings and they find themselves sued to oblivion.
Drivers in Russia with dashboard cameras have power when people jump in front of their vehicles.
When the people have the cameras, they have the power. Sadly many individuals equate cameras with power so they feel powerless when they see another individual with a camera. Just give everybody cameras, let them record everything. Power to the people, and all that.
