    Angry The camel's nose

    Well, it seems in the interests of national security, we are going to lose even more of our privacy.

    the antiterrorism act... which is in the process of refiining, gives access to everything legally to all officials as long as they can justify it (which is as hard as saying..."they could be a terrorist") This means they can monitor your internet activity, log keystrokes, tap phones, enter your house without a warrant and search it, and many more things ALL LEGALLY. This article is the least of our worries.

    Apathy is our biggest problem. If people let the gov't abuse a law, they will.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    I'd like to the reaction of the public of any nation if the government opened every single letter or package (I'm talking about snail mail here) and examined the contents. Nobody would be able to hear for a month because of the noise from the public outcry. Personally I don't see any difference (besides the speed of coarse) between snail mail and email so why will any government be able to get away with this?

    What exactly is their justification for this? Why do government agencies need to be able to access it so quickly that they can't get a court order? Makes me glad I'm not in the US...

    Is this the same lord_darkside_x that was trying to make a point in this thread about how The Government already monitors and censors the 'net....so.....why should we be concerned with their involvment with ICAAN?
