330. How do you feel about Jeremy Jaynes, who got a nine year prison sentence for spamming people with junk email (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Jaynes)?

342. Does it seem to you like the range of socially acceptable behaviour is getting smaller or larger? Both. In times last century people were judged by gender or skin colour etc. Women, aboriginals, African Americans etc were not allowed to vote. Thankfully, that has changed. Previously, people were allowed to hit children with items to discipline them. In general that is no longer acceptable. Society is evolving and things that were acceptable are no longer. New things become acceptable.
343. Have you ever fired a gun? No.
344. Are people becoming more afraid of each other? I don’t know. More cautious maybe.
345. If you had to choose the percentage of freedom vs. safety what ratio would you decide on (ex: 100% free 0% safe)? As Julia Roberts’ character said in Pretty Women “I’m a safety girl.” So for me tonight the answer is 30% free, 70% safe.
346. Does safety stifle you? Not usually.
347. Who or what needs to be stopped? Lots of things. Famine, cruelty, abuse, etc.
348. Are human beings becoming more domesticated? Than what?
