Arden the genius.

"So should we give up a little (or all) of our privacy for increased or complete security? Should we allow our governments complete access to our lives, so that they can protect us from harm? Now we come back to our original question "Do the ends justify the means?", and yet are still no closer to a unequivocal answer. Let me leave you with a unsettling concept, if we were to allow our governments this unbridled control in exchange for absolute protection, how can we be sure those who in control have our best interests at heart? who is there to make sure they do not misuse their power? or more poetically "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" which translated from latin is "Who watches the watchmen?"

This was written by a brilliant and particularly learned friend of mine, Arden.
Check out his blog. Then you can feel special in ten years when he's the President of America and you were one of his original fans.
