Chekism is where we're headed.
from Wikipedia: "Chekism (from Cheka, the first Soviet secret police organization) is a term to describe the situation in the Soviet Union and contemporary Russia, where the secret political police control everything in society."
If we are not already there, Chekism is where we're headed.
Our secret police (GCHQ) will have so much on so many Britons there will be no pool of future politicians who could defy them.
Look already at how the NSA and GCHQ have done universal internal spying against the wishes of and formal testimony made to the lawmakers of the USA and UK, and look at how there has been no repercussions for those who either broke the law by spying internally or broke the law by perjuring themselves.
It is only a matter of time before our secret police exert the same supreme control on our industry that they do on our government.
