No More Cameras In Columbus

Mayor Coleman proposed a new system of cameras to watch the populace of Columbus. What does this show?

Have we failed as a society in that we have to relegate our responsibility to our fellow citizen to a machine?

This is not good public policy in that we must plant the seeds to a future society where:
1. each individual is not thrown to isolation
2. where they lose perspective as to their place in our society that cause them to commit crimes of frustration and cause harm to all of us because our lack of attention.

Prevention is the best medicine.

It is better to spend this money on community support for all citizens and understanding the way to a new paradigm of social support that could set the stage for progressive community government into the next millennium.

This is generally apparent in eastern societies to some extent but even there, it needs further development and refinement.

Let's look at society as being us, we need to be healed, we need not to get bombed, we need others to bring US out of isolation.

I saw an article somewhere this week that some Texas city was thinking of removing their cameras because people werent violating the laws anymore and they were losing revenue.
