Consent, What Consent?

Three Degrees of Freedom has an excellent post on the government's partial approach to the concept of taking the consent of it's citizens seriously.

I would only say that I think her point extends to plenty of other related areas too. For example, I somehow doubt that this government will be overly exercised over the issue of seeking consent to invade childrens' privacy in the home.

Absolutely, Carlotta. I'm glad you enjoyed my post. The government is like a magician - it has 'consent', for example, appear when the concept suits the government's purpose and disappear when it does not.
