Re: Are you sure?
The state spying of the population is true.
Until you get targeted you will be blissfully unaware of what the secret services get up to. Your school reports, your medical records, everything centralised by Govt, local Govt and some big businesses will be used to build up a psychological profile of you. Your TV viewing habits, your music tastes, the people you communicate with and your relatives will all be used to help the secret services justify their existence when they decide to target you and provoke you to keep proving their preemptive psychological profiling.
Just look at the memory stick death aka the police murder of Anthony Grainger.
Considering every memory stick has a unique id, and it happened to contain a list of police operations, informers and more, how else do you track down the individual who has highly sensitive files, other than use big tech giants to track it down?
Its all there in plain site, just how stupid do you have to be to accept the lies they put out because like others have said, law needs evidence which is why you can never trust a govt that operates in secret.
Can you imagine the public outcry if you knew the truth that Govt does spy on you?
Everything to do with the internet and technology is all designed to spy on you, do you wait until they target you or your kids or your friends before you believe it?
Govt is all about control, its all about keeping an eye on you, just like you keep an eye on your kids, and just like you lie to your kids about Santa Claus so the govt lies to you about the extent of its spying on the population.
When will you wake up and smell the roses?
