Yes. Fishy.... To the points of view of the government. They clearly say that if you hear something in your causal conversations or emails, etc etc, that does not go in line with the government's views, report them.
I'm sorry, but when you report something as fishy when it comes to opinions on policy, you are in essence partaking in controlling society to think a certain way. Not only does it violate the freedom of privacy, it also creates fear.
You are wrong. The government is asking for you to report things that do not go in line with their opinion. And the very blog post it comes from contradicts the very document it defends.
It is double think, it is wrong, and a violation of privacy.
Why report them? Why is it needed. The government does not do things without reason. If it wants them reported, it wants them known. Knowing is control.
