SAY NO TO INTERNET SPYING BY THE GOVERNMENT
SAY NO TO surveillance of our most intimate communications and what we do and were we go on the internet (or any other electronic system). Contact your MP and make the case stated below.
Why is this important?
This the same as proposing to spy directly on our thoughts. Why is this? Thinking people will see that it is only the TECHNOLOGY that changes between spying on our internet intimacy and the spying on the intimacy of our thoughts. Scientists have ALREADY been able to 'read our thoughts' using an electronic implant.
If these (irresponsible) power seekers proposed today to spy on our thoughts, there would be such a hue and cry that it would shake the very foundations of our society.
We need to make sure that this erosion of our human rights, this constant leveraging of available technology by the ‘in power’ spies is outlawed once and for all. Perhaps this would be a good reason to have (within the UK) a written constitution?
The argument that it is all done for the common good is not good enough – not unless you wish your thoughts to be opened up to scrutiny in future by the then ‘democratic or undemocratic’ power brokers. SAY NO NOW.
