Nearly A Third Of Young People Support Government Cameras In Every Home: POLL

Story by James Lynch • 14h ago

Nearly a third of young Americans support government surveillance cameras being installed in every home to reduce domestic abuse and other criminal activity, according to a new poll.

The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, polled Americans on whether they would support a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), a national digital currency being considered by the Federal Reserve.

As part of the survey, Cato also asked people whether they would support installing government surveillance cameras in private homes. Three quarters of respondents opposed the idea with 14% in favor and 10% who did not know. Among Americans under the age of 30, 29% were in favor of government cameras in people’s homes.

Older age groups are less likely to support the idea, as only 6% of those over the age of 45 believe government cameras should be in people’s homes.

Black Americans are more tolerant of government cameras than other racial groups, with 33% in favor of the proposal. One quarter of Hispanic Americans, 9% of white Americans and 11% of Asian Americans believe the government should monitor people’s homes.

Democrats are slightly more supportive than Republicans of cameras in private homes, polling at 17% support compared to 11% among Republicans. Within the Democratic cohort, people who considered themselves “liberal” are more in favor (19%) than “very liberal” Americans (9%).

Overall, more than half of those who supported adoption of a CBDC supported putting government cameras in people’s homes, Cato found. Cato’s polling accounted for the potential for a national CBDC to allow the government to monitor what Americans buy and potentially freeze people’s bank accounts.

“After learning about some of the potential costs and benefits of a CBDC, Americans appear wary. They are concerned about the potential for government surveillance and control of how they spend their money as well as the impact a CBDC could have on cash,” the Cato pollsters conclude.

Most Americans are generally unfamiliar with CBDCs, Cato’s polling demonstrates. Those who are made aware of the concept generally oppose. A paltry 16% support a national CBDC and 34% oppose the proposal, while 49% of respondents said they don’t know. The majority of Americans who are “very” familiar with CBDCs believe the U.S. should adopt a national digital currency, but this group skews younger, wealthy and male compared to the American people.

Cato conducted the survey with YouGov and collected responses from a politically representative sample of 2,000 Americans. The survey was taken from Feb 27 to March 8 and it has a margin of error of 2.54% either way.


Do they actually believe that the Government would ONLY use this for protection of the victims. They really don’t think the Government would count there guns, see who they screw, count their calories, monitor when their car leaves/enters the garage, look for the evil gas stove, is that a bull terrier, what’s in that safe, what is that you are teaching your kids…?


Nice to know the direction of government can be swayed by 2,000 youngin’s🙄


And now you understand why there’s a push to lower the voting age.


If one wants something done correctly one has to do it themselves. The government will only protect the government. When the people become the government and the government becomes the people will the government/ people get it correct.

I just read a news article that indicated that only 56% of social studies teachers believed it was important to teach basic civics and the constitution, including the rights of individuals protected in the constitution.

We’re raising a whole generation of people who don’t really grasp the very idea of rights, that they have them, that they’re valuable, and that there is a fundamental document to this country that protects them.

People can’t protect that which they don’t even know they have. It’s exactly why police are required to read someone their rights- no one is reading these kids their rights! Once they’re gone the people who didn’t know they have them will understand what they lost, but by then it’s too late.


How sad. Americans believe that government surveillance and the illusion of security provided by government trumps individual privacy. I suppose that’s why millions willingly line up at the airport to consent to a search of their person by government agents. “Gosh, the government is keeping me safe by searching me, and would never, ever abuse that authority, so we can and should suspend the 4th Amendment’s guarantee of freedom from warrantless searches.”

The same attitude also drives the anti-2nd Amendment crowd, BTW. Security (or the illusion of such) trumps the individual right to keep and bear arms.


The absolute best way for them to grasp that idea of freedom, is to take it away!


Was George Orwell’s 1984 (published in 1949) prophetic, or was it a blueprint?


Why are 44% of Social Studies teachers still teaching if they don’t think that even basic civics is important to learn? They should have chosen a different profession. Something important, like underwater gender studies.

I’ve been saying this for decades, but one of the root problems is that we don’t test civics. We grade schools based on their math and language scores from standardized testing. So schools put all their money and effort into those subjects. They deprioritize all others, which is why liberal arts and civics fall to the wayside. You cannot expect what you do not inspect.

All high school seniors should be given the naturalization test that immigrants have to pass. People freak out when I say this, but the test obviously wouldn’t affect the citizenship they already have. The purpose of the test would be to see if schools are fulfilling their most basic job of teaching the next generation how to fulfill their role as citizens. It’s about making civics a priority.


…" I suppose that’s why millions willingly line up at the airport to consent to a search of their person by government agents. “Gosh, the government is keeping me safe by searching me, and would never, ever abuse that authority"… ,

SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSsH Brother Mark… Their MASTER Plan is working on today’s ‘Yoots’… Muahahahahahhahahahahahhahahhahahahahhahahahah !

Can you say BLUE PILL or BLUE PILL? You have a choice Young Americans…right!
(som’ of dem peopo still smells like Hamburger 'n onions…)

Not me. I go through TSA because it’s the only action I get, these days.


I swear one of those Tee AZZ A’er’s had a Spatula in their back pocket…

Not that it matters, but I’ll drive 8-10 hours before I go through the hassle and annoyance of air travel. Flying busses. Groping by federal employees. Often late or cancelled. $8+ hot dogs at airport concession stands. Extra charges for “luxuries,” like luggage. $20+/day for parking.



Need at least six characters, hmmmm


When I lived in WA state, I saw an older car with a teenager driving and on the bumper was a sticker that read: who needs civil rights I wasn’t using them to start with

The zombies are real and out there. However these aren’t looking for brains.

Have we reached our two minutes of hate time period yet?



Yeah, it has to be quite a long distance before it’s worth flying, these days. At some of the bigger airports, you could have 3-4 hours wasted by the time you arrive, get your boarding pass, and get through security. You could be half way through an 8 hour drive by then.

But of course, I’d miss out on getting groped by the TSA. Who else am I going to find who will feel me up for free?


That rugged individual pioneer spirit is dead.


There will come a time I predict when the
Yoot’s’ of ‘Amerika CCRepublic of’ will look @ the ‘matrix’
films and go oooh a New documentary!
Like our reference to George Orwell’s 1984
They will say “How did they know?”
