Behind Closed Doors

by Devin Maria (writer), Los Angeles, August 31, 2006

You tell me. With the onslaught of the internet and spy cams to show us every detail of a person's life, an ever increasing hunger for reality T.V., and the signing of the Patriot Act by President Bush on October 26, 2001, is it any wonder that we have no more privacy? Everyone wants to be in everyone else's business. And to take that one step further there's a growing, pulsating need to dictate how another person lives behind closed doors. Why should Mr. President care who we keep company with in the privacy of our bedrooms? Why should anyone have the authority to delve hap-hazardly into our phone records, financial status or even to trace which websites we visit and how often? Is it intrinsic that the government keep an eye on Joe down the street because he enjoys midget porn? Or a watchful eye on Sally and Susie because they enjoy one another's company? Seems more like perversion than Homeland security to me.
Is our country really governed by the people? Do these intrusions really make America more safe? Does God really love us more because we are heterosexual and only do it in the missionary position? I say this, "what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors." Let us move on to more pressing issues like world peace and self acceptance.

Some kooks have an unhealthy desire to know and see and hear what goes on behind closed doors between consentig adults. Other kooks have to bring what should be behind closed doors out into the public. They have a need to Live Out Loud. An example in this newspaper is Cindy's Broowaha article Now you call it madness (but I call it love).

I completely agree, what goes on behind closed doors should stay behind closed doors. But, what about the trend with sites like myspace and facebook where people are basically advertising their lifestyles and preferences? It seems to me that this wave of personal publicity is creating a narcissistic trend that encroaches on the boundaries of privacy and making it much easier for others to keep track of potentially suspicious behaviors. Very thought provoking article. Good job.

Homeland Security has actually made me feel insecure. "Power corrupts, ultimate power corrupts ultimately"- forgot who said it.
