Government surveillance moves quickly from terrorists to “troublemakers”

leave a comment »

We have a long history of how government security services work—from the NYPD to the FBI to the secret police of various repressive regimes—and we see how they quickly move from focusing on criminals to watching people the government deems “troublemakers”—i.e., people doing things the government does not like, such as peacefully protesting against government actions or policies. (E.g., the NYPD, the FBI, and counter-terrorism task forces have secretly watched various protest groups.)

So New Zealand spies on a man who runs an anti-corruption campaign—and not even in New Zealand!

The intense government surveillance of people who have done nothing wrong is getting WAY out of hand.
