Question description

In Praise of Big Brother

For your fourth essay, please write a two- to three-page (600-900 word) response to the following question:

In "In Praise of Big Brother: Why We Should  Learn to Stop Worrying and Love (Some) Government Surveillance" (pp. 236- 249), James Stacey Taylor argues for the optimistic conclusion that, with the right legal and procedural safeguards, large-scale governance surveillance would have many positive consequences. What are Taylor's best reasons for rejecting the pessimistic worry that such surveillance could lead to an "Orwellian nightmare" that Taylor discusses at the beginning and end of his article? Do you find these considerations persuasive? Why or why not? 

Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of the assigned question and that your answer is well-organized, uses excellent, college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual evidence.
