Again, demonstrating your ignorance.
    Do I sense negativity or ignorance? Just a few hundred thousand dead Japanese. A million dead Vietnamese. A hundred thousand plus Iraqis. Did I forget to mention No Gun Ri? And who knows what else?

    How could the benefits of the complete violation of your privacy possibly outweigh the negative?

    Both negativity and ignorance exist, even here..
    But, Dave, exactly what are you trying to say ?
    That these millions of deaths are the result of man not caring ??

    I have been burned by trusting those "untrustworthy" (lawyers, merchants (some), those people drowning in hatred and fear).
    But, I'd sooner be dead than go thru-out life without trusting anyone...
    A good judge, I am not....
    Now, this "mind reading device", a first step....but man has a lot of catching up to do...I think the technology is way ahead of him...

    You're being narrow minded - don't you see the potential applications for medical uses? That's not good? Right now I'm sure many people who cannot adequately communicate verbally would have a lot to say if they could communicate using some sort of advanced technology such as this . . . in fact: they already use some forms of technology that do sense and respond to your brain activity to enable one to perform a function.

    If abused or used the wrong way it can have some negatives. But that doesn't mean all potential applications thereof are bad or that it should be outrightly banned or feared.

    If you think that the negatives of something are grounds for all the life-saving and liberating positives to be tossed out then you're being crass and ignorant.

    There are countless things that have good and bad uses - we try to discourage and punish the bad and continue to enable or even defend the good. . . why should this be any different?

    As long as the people can control the government I'm all for it, but I doubt they can as has been proven over and over again.

    Yeah well: if I ever become a mute invalid I sure as hell won't care. . . I have a lot to say - not being able to communicate my thoughts is like a death - might as well be dead.

    I wouldnt' want your paranoia of government and fear of the CIA and need for foil hats to rob me of potential freedom in such a dire situation.

    You are misrepresenting my view. I'm all for the ability to create this product, but I know full well the government will use it. Its called understanding the reality of the situation.

    So then what was with this question:

    How could the benefits of the complete violation of your privacy possibly outweigh the negative?
    If you feel the benefits shouldnt' be overlooked and you support the production of said product - then aren't you and I saying the exact same thing?
