My condolences to our friends in the U.K., who seem to be leading the charge toward a police state. The U.K. police are now demanding new powers to attack "terrorist" use of the Internet. Under these "anti-terrorist" proposals, "it would become an offence to fail to disclose encryption keys."
"Police added that the measure would help police stop the spread of child abuse images on the web." Excuse me? Wasn't this about terrorists?
There, in a nutshell, is what the U.K. and U.S. governments are trying to accomplish: underthe guise of the "war on terror," they want all kinds of new and expansive powers to be used against the entire citizenry.
When you hear the cry for more "anti-terror" measures, remember: you're being scammed. —brad
