    If you know me at all, you probably know I always take the opposite stance to everyone else:) BUT, seriously when there are serious organised groups of people in the world that want to deliberately kill as many people as they can, to support various causes, what do you expect?

    To be honest, if there WASN'T a secret task force doing shit like this, I would be pissed, unfortunately its the alternative to waking up one day to news that some lunatics have flown another plane into a building or blew up a subway or bombed an event or something, they've been planning it for two years but we didn't know because we're not legally allowed to look out for that shit unless we have a warrant, and/or they shout their plans out loud to each other.

    but, yea, it is still crazy :)

    I expect freedom. Terrorists are just an excuse for governments to take away freedom. There 's also lightning, I don't see nukes thrown at the clouds to blow them up for fear of killing some innocent. There 's also car accidents - I don't see anyone storming in the houses of people who may have alcohol that might consume before driving and kill some innocent.

    Local police aren't mayberry retards anymore they have access to alot of tools. They started out monitoring child porn and used the "Protect the children" motto to get support and even more powerful tools with the goal of monitoring anything.

    Reminds me of a time when I accidentally googled male enhancement pills because they were a performing keyword on a client's site. Good times..... Except that it was my work computer

    I see what you're saying, but what would you do if you were in power? You know there's an organisation out there that is planning to bomb public spaces, they are clever, they plan meticulously, they cover their tracks and they are smart - they don't slip up and they don't arouse much suspicion, so if they are planning another attack, it will be very hard to detect.

    your in charge of the country (the target), what do you do?

    whitehat, or blackhat approach ? :)

    Cant argue with a conspiracy theorist I guess. But I've already been their and done that. There was a point in time where I thought I was being followed every day by under cover police, and then some, I was insanely paranoid and thought there were loads of conspiracies going on.
    but I think the realities are a lot more mundane.

    anyway, we aren't allowed to discuss politics here for good reason, so I'll keep quiet:)

    Its scary that 25 years after I first read it George Orwells 1984 it get more and more prophetic. If you want modern reads Then Noam Chomsky or Naomi Wolf are worth a look.

    We cant allow society to be shaped by "terrorism" the denial of rights of too many is a bluff for government control and imposement of draconian laws with buzzword titles(like the Patriot act in the US....what US citizen would object to a "Patriot" act" ?

    The Nazi party didnt come to power in Germany because Germans suddenly fell in love with a charismatic Austrian. It took 10 years of tighter laws and regulations to be slowly introduced. Placing the population in a state of fear and highlighting scapegoats.

    The facts are (and I have a reasonable backround in this) is that one individual or worse, a semi organised group of 5-8 people can inflict great damage. One headcase with a penknife could stab 5-10 people in a crowded supermarket tomorrow and release a video linking hin to a religion or movement which would get worldwide press. In a world where thousands of children still starve to death weekly we need to rise above extremities and protect liberty for the greater good.

    Look at the UK....we want to protect all you people so we will patrol the internet to screen for child pornography....Who would disagree with that > why only a pervert...so nobody says anything....Of course to screen for pedos we need to screen everyones emails and browsing activity all the time.. Whats the problem ? if you have nothing to hide theres nothing to worry about. Its now a crime to have a "Private" life.

    Just remember that governments are only made up of people, the same as you and me. We all come from the same place and have the same genetic make up, and faced with certain scenarios and responsibilities we would , over all, act in similar ways.

    as a race we have the unstoppable habit of thinking something extremely alien is going on anywhere that we are not.
