I presume you've spoken to your local political representative (judging
from your alias, of the S in SPQR) about installing a public cam in his
villa's thermes, and he was unreserved enthusiastical about it?

Of course, if cameras there are, they "should" be pointing both ways.
However, you might observe that solving the quis custodiet by mutual
snoopery, strangely, has not so far cropped up on the Big Brother's
agenda. They like keeping the tabs on you, unilaterally, and like to keep
it that way.

A much simple solution would seem to not install the darn cams in the
first place, thus not granting the license to snoop, or revoking it,
where, foolishly, it was granted, using the usual political channels.

Private cams be different, since they be not blanket.
