What do the Swine flu and hacker attacks have in common?
Yeah, I'd say that's a good foot to start off on, especially when you're a security company fearmongering people into buying your product.
When it comes to the good laws against rape, murder, theft, etc, the police are almost 100% REactive.
That's because the minute you start trying to be proactive against those, you generally starting infringing upon the bill of rights. I, for one, rather like my privacy and would rather not have government run security cameras on every corner, as the do in London.
Someday somebody has got to decide whether the typewriter is the machine, or the person who operates it.
