Entry Description:

Some people say our ideal life should be pure, simple, and villatic - just like yesterday. Yet, our pioneers of science, society, economy, and many other fields greatly strive to make our life safer and more efficient, namely through surveillance systems. Thanks to them, our neighborhoods are safer than ever; however, something also has changed, the feeling. I remember when I was a child, the best time was summer. I could run in the rural orchard and farmland and have the place almost to myself. Only plants and animals could see me. I also remember when my family moved to the city. Now and then, I would inadvertently find surveillance cameras rotating among an empty nature park. It was then I suddenly realized someone was always watching me, even when I was among just plants. I felt that the fully relaxed feeling would never return as I walked in the city.
