It’s a week of repeats here at the Cynical Libertarian Society. I have much much going on and don’t have time for podcasting this week. Next week I’ll be back to piss you off with new anarcho-capitalist offensiveness.
Wearing Google Glass doesn’t only make you a tool, it also makes you a target for DHS. In today’s Anarchy Moment we look at an example of the police state serving the interest of the corporations.
If I see you wearing Google Glass I’m going to make fun of you. What I’m not going to do is call the DHS so that you can be detained for 3 hours by people who spent their childhoods torturing animals.

What’s most interesting, read thru the comments and look at the way many of the slaves make excuses for their masters in the State.
“To all of you using Google glasses in public, you’re rude and very creepy–it doesn’t take a genius to figure out 99% of what this will be used for is videotaping for your personal T&A collection, so you can not only stare creepily at women, but keep a record of it.”
This comment is from a fat woman. No surprise there. Ugly women always think men want their bodies.
“The guy is a half-wit. The FBI was doing what they should have done, he walked in with a recording device, period! If someone walked in with a video camera you better believe they are an idiot and deserve to be, at minimum, questioned. Those things are for complete and utter tools anyways…. “
Yes, Google Glass makes you a tool. So tools should be detained, questioned and treated like shit?
“Seriously Julie? “arrest?” Nobody got arrested. Nobody went to jail. Stop sensationalizing the damn headline. This site is gonna fall back off the radar as soon as this 15 minutes is over. This site’s content blows.”
People will forget about it. It must be okay.
“I think his an idiot and deserved it. Why would you take a high-tech glasses to the theater anyway if you know their policy against piracy, no matter how ridicilous it is ? Why not just take a big-ass camera or a gun and act all suprised when people start flipping ? And the excuse that you had your lenses on them and couldn’t take the regular glasses, so what ? Im still not taking my gun everywhere just to show everyone i have a tiny shlong and need attention. Its not that hard to use your common sense.”
The opinion of someone who can’t capitalize “I” and has a small dick is of no concern.
“There should be a sign at the entrance to the theater. “If you are such a pathetic tool as to have Google Glass on your person, please put it away while you are here.”
Management failed to have the foresight to post such a sign, so now a pathetic tool, who is not embarrassed to wear Google Glass in public, has a story to tell about his maltreatment. Could be the most interesting thing that ever happened in his life.”
Another vote for “being different than me should be illegal”. Good to see all the tolerance and diversity in action.
“Dude, it’s your fault to begin with. Why are you wearing a device capable of recording, into a cinema. Regardless of whether it is on or off, you will be prone to suspicion. Why do you choose to create such suspicion when you should have just worn either normal glasses or just take them off before entering the cinema. Unnecessary trouble created as a result of your ignorance. I am speechless.”
How dare you have a cock. Just having a cock means you might be a rapist. Hey white person. You’re white. You are capable of being racist. I’m suspicious of you. Calling DHS right now.
“Anybody who wears these things is a douche. You deserve what you get.”
And you’re a slave and you deserve what you get.
“Being detained is not an arrest, being detained with probable cause is not an arrest. Mr. Anonymity is in a location known where pirating takes place. Mr. Anonymity had a pair of glasses capable of filming images in a known pirating location. Mr. Anonymity has forgotten everything. This is most likely a fictitious incident, it never happened and if it did happen, this site; along with others, have blown it way out of proportion adding it to the pile of digital detritus that has become the Internet.”
This comment is likely written by a government sock puppet account.
