Web snooping policy shrouded in secrecy


www.smh.com.au

The federal government is hiding controversial plans to force ISPs to store internet activity of all Australian internet users - regardless of whether they have been suspected of wrongdoing - for law-enforcement agencies to access.

Political opponents and other critics of the scheme have described the draft policy as "alarming" and accused the government of going "on a fishing expedition for as much data on the public as they can get". One ISP executive has described the plan as "a nanny state gone totally insane".

What next, shall we keep tabs on our neighbours to (oh wait we've already got that number here 1900 dob-them-in) I think Rud must have secret talks with Howard, this sounds just like his thing. This is crazy, I'm going back to the bush.

Keep in mind, cyber-spying legislation and the police state in general, is not primarily directed at the average populace. The main purpose is surveillance of politicians. Once they visit the wrong website, write a revealing email, jackpot. Plant some evidence to be picked up by the local ISP? They will be yours forever.

Of course surveillance of the general public is profoundly effective as well at stopping dissidence before it has a chance to spread.
