Points of View

The author used Marcus's mother and father to represent different points of view about government oversight of individuals. Spying on people to find terrorists is OK which is Marcus's father's idea. That it is not OK for the government to take away freedom from people is Marcus's mother's opinion. In this novel, in chapters 7-9, there are many ways that the DHS and spying on people to find out who were terrorists by using things like FasTrak and cameras. As a result of that they did, they found out who is using drugs, who are liars and who is cheating in love but they did not find any terrorists and that caused people to stop working and waste their time. In my perspective, Marcus's mother's point of view best presents my perspective. I think the DHS has rights to spy on us to find terrorist but not on all of us.
