People are assumng something that I can't assume, which is that in a totally
transparent, surveillanced society that courts would exist in the way they do
I think they'd be nearly obsolete.
If every act was archived, every action known by all, prosecutors, lawyers
and judges would have to go the way of the dodo.For this reason alone, it
couldn't happen, since lawyers need jobs as much as criminals do.
The way it is today, these kinds of arguments find wieght. When everything is
known what good will lying or contesting do?
