This Conversation Always Goes Like This

Tom: So you want the government to develop a mind-reading technology that could forcibly extract thoughts from people’s heads with clinical accuracy? You want the government to have access to your most private, sensitive, intimate memories? You want the government to have the technological capacity to delve into your most embarrassing secrets, or secrets which your wife or parents have entrusted to you? You want the government to be able to extract passwords from human brains? Phobias? You want private companies to be able to do this to their employees? Seriously?

Harry: Yes.

Tom: How in the world could such technology be justified?

Harry: Dominion mandate.
