Part of the problem here seems to be that Kandahar is not really interested in a two way open minded adult conversation about the topic. His early post read like those of a teenager, berating parents about "invasion of privacy" and sifting through kid's rooms and going through their "private things" gasp! This is at the same time as he charges anyone who does not agree with his POV as being "paranoid." Not once but twice.
We will ignore for the moment two common sense points that elude Kandahar. Namely that all parents go through their kids rooms and that of course all children are not "teenage" and children's rights to privacy come about with age and trust. They are not born with it and arguing about a newborn's right to the same is ludicrous. Period.
Incite to ridicule seems to be the point. In reply to Bohdi he stated the following:
It is also very important to the argument that the only possible use of a GPS implant is "gross invasions of their kids' privacy." He is perfectly willing to pretend that the only use for such a GPS implant is to violate privacy rights. Apparently he is perfectly willing to also pretend that a GPS implant will include optic and audio sensors and would thus be capable of doing more than relaying a location. Which is of course exactly what most parents would want from the implant, those looking for more from such an implant must wait for some truly Star Trek like advances in technology before they can salaciously eavesdrop on the privacy of their victims.
Also never mind that many parents will be of the mind to let their children know they have the implants, once they reach the age the parent deems appropriate and they need not be hidden. A point he added to the OP, not something anyone has actually argued! I have been unable to locate anyone advocating these GPS implants as anything other than tracking devices and safety tools.
Somewhere along this area in Kandahar's oh so thoughtful commentary he then decided that not only are those who don't agree with him and his narrow framing on this issue paranoid, but he would offer many other situations that prove if you don't agree with him you are wrong and in fact "stressing" about needless worries.
Ya know, because ya can't think for yourself here and you must be a dupe of the media or media hype.
Frankly he is so busy sneering and jibing at everyone in thread as foolish or a dupe engaged in violating privacy rights, it never occurred to him to come up for air and realize we are talking about a GPS implant. Just like those implanted in pets, so that when the go missing or stray, they can located, these can't actually violate or give away anything more than a location. Yes my lord how "evil" of rational parents to utilize such a device to protect their children.
Kandahar, seriously kid, you got a lot to learn.
