All it is is a heat disposal system. A building has heat. I'm sure you understand how you can use an IR camera to "see" a heated structure in total darkness. The heat on the inside is absorbed and emitted towards outside in a spectrum that isn't absorbed by the atmosphere. It's effectively "dumped" into space. (And shielded by a mirror that prevents it from absorbing the infrared coming from the sun.)

In what alternate reality does one think that the internet wouldn't have been developed without one person? Or that computers and thus networking of those computers, and thus communication via those computers isn't just an inevitable part of the path of science and technology? We are all dumber for having read your post.

Frankly, I'd rather have police accountability than privacy from having people see my face while I'm in public.

You realize that this is not an either/or choice right? We can give police body cameras & get the associated enhanced accountability and put safeguards in to prevent it turning to ubiquitous surveillance,

'Oh noes', like people are being irrational suggesting we limit ubiquitous surveillance.
