They say that in a democracy, if the rights of one man is oppressed so is everyone's. Well imagine the Truman Show, a life where everything was controlled, and privacy is practically no where to be found, and there were no coincidences. How would everyone's rights be oppressed then? Surely in that world, laws would have been passed in government to allow these things, and probably would have been also stretched to society. Where government controls everything including the people, and people are being monitored. Maybe that society is more focused on wants rather than needs.
