Without Privacy These Civilized People, They'll Eat Each Other

'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather scornful tone,' it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less.' Those that throw the proverbial stones should avoid mirrors, because the 'Looking-Glass' represents many different interpretations! What's privacy, who needs it?

Facebook represents a 21st century variation of a looking glass, with the proposed end of privacy should we expect the ugly aspect of human nature to become a prominent fixture? Remember FriendFeed, Syphilis And The Perfection Of Online Mobs, Mike Arrington stated that things are changing online way too fast for society and culture to adapt. Something will eventually break. I witnessed this ugly aspect when I moderated forums for Microsoft, without the appropriate tools and settings then everything changes..
You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke. Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they'll eat each other.
