I'm not sure but I would hazard a guess at yes they already do, it's just going to get worse.

Obviously it's my neck of the woods, and not the US, but i seem to recall some retard near enough getting the tin pail over posting a vid of his dog doing an approximation of the Nazi salute on FB.

I imagine it would have been Facebook censored and drew the local authority's attention to the idiots nonsensical act.

I think what people (sometimes, perhaps) miss is that while (yes) they can already do just about anything they want, the goal here is to normalize it in the eyes of the public and the law so that it is not seen as an abuse of power.

Seems to be yes, at least in the U.S it's easy to fool the people into doing they're bidding, all a goverment stooge has to do is blame the left or blame the right depending on the flavour of goverment and boom the people on their side support them.

Eta .i should add our goverment are probably worse they just past legislations when nobody is paying attention.

That's been going on since at least 9/11.

9/11 was a huge catalyst for this totalitarian tiptoe.

I have just always assumed that the FBI could look at my browser history anyway whether they have a warrant or not as they don't seem to particularly care whether they are following legalities since at least 9/11 and probably even before that. So far they can't arrest you just for searching the internet for things but at the rate they're going I'm sure that will change soon.

*waves at thought police*



Oh wow, you posted pretty much the same as I did before I saw your post. I didn't plagiarize you, just seems we got the same first impression.

Let them.. let them be astounded by the amount of explainable or just plain crap searches and page visits.

If they ever want to browse mine... theyd surely be confused and dumbfounded. I look up a lot of things depending on what has caught my eye or what Im reading at the moment. I mean like I searcehd Kebab murder. A girl in the UK was killed and supposedly used for kebab meat in a guys deli. Or better yet... I was looking to find a source for chloroform. My main education and hobby is entomology... and I kill and mount my own insects that are captive bred. I was looking for a means to make the parts more pliable after death.. so I looked to find a place to buy cyanide. I have a masters in science.. and due to my employment I can order some gnarly stuff. I look for it... since on my own I decided Id try to source chems that were not originating in China ( and that I didnt have to pay 100 bucks for a hazards fee on top of shipping).

There are lots of reasons for being in strange places on the internet and learning strange things.


I continually have to look up the definition of a lot of slang. People I deal with dont speak that way.. and I had NO idea what a Karen was.. or frumunda cheese... among many things.

Whats that???


do Americans not have that ?
in the uk it's An Act to make new provision for the regulation of the processing of information relating to individuals, including the obtaining, holding, use or disclosure of such information.

Apparently not.

I would expect, very shortly, several--as in lots--of court challenges. How this even remotely begins to pass Constitutional muster is quite beyond me.

Of course, the actions of too many state govs shouldn't be passing muster either...so what do I know??

Here ya go...

It's, obviously, not applicable to the US, as it was an act from the British govt.

True that.

Most of us, maybe even all of us, have clicked on, or looked up, subject matter that's embarrassing, but not illegal.

Where does one even begin to explain what's wrong with this??

Illegal search and seizure--good place to start.
