"Global security and the "war on terror" now dominate the global political agenda. Driven largely by the United States, a growing web of
anti-terrorism and security measures are being adopted by nations around the world. This new "security" paradigm is being used to roll back freedom
and increase police powers in order to exercise increasing control over individuals and populations.
Under the public's radar screen, a registration and surveillance infrastructure of global reach is quietly being constructed. It includes the
convergence of national and international databases, the creation of data profiles for whole populations, the creation of a global ID system, the
global surveillance of movement, and the global surveillance of electronic communications.
The International Campaign Against Mass Surveillance (ICAMS) has launched a petition to demand that international organizations and national
governments stop participating in the construction of this system."
It is not until you read an article such as the one in the link below that you realise how far down thr New World Avenue we have wandered.
