A country that is spying on itself and cannot stop 2 kids from bombing a major sporting event even with warning from foreign nationals is one that is
scared of what it is becoming and trying to learn how it can further control its citizens.
That's the punch line that nobody seems to get. All the spying in the world under the largest and most invasive police state possible cannot do
anything to prevent any of the incidents it is in place to prevent.
Which begs the question: what is it all really
I wonder how many real criminals were rounded up and real crimes prevented by the Stasi. My guess is very few if any.
But how many bureaucratic crimes were prevented and how many state defined "criminals" were rounded up? Nearly all of them.
No police state can stop a kid from blowing up a bomb in a populated place. What a police state can do is round up your family and lock them away for
a kid tweeting out something the state doesnt like.
ETA: Not only is preventing real crime not possible there is nothing to gain from doing it. There is absolutely nothing to gain for a state to prevent
crime. Every committed crime however give the state greater leeway in what measures are instituted to theoretically prevent crime.
I gain nothing by stopping a bombing. After the bombing I can do whatever I want as long as tell you it's to prevent future bombings and the people
will love me for putting cameras in their grandmothers toilet and turning on their childs webcam.
