Demos fears government terror strategy 'fuels mistrust'
Secrecy surrounding counter-terrorism operations is fuelling mistrust of authorities, a study by independent think tank Demos suggests.
It urges the government and secret services to be more open to stop extremist groups using conspiracy theories to discredit them.
this would appear to me to be part of a strategy simply aimed at attacking everyone who claims any government would dream of doing anything to their
history has shown us that governments do all sorts of horrible and unethical things to their populations..from spraying people in england with
bacteria from planes in the 70s to simply killing millions.
this report also suggests the public should 'trust' government more and its conspiracy theories built up around the 'necessary secrecy or silence'
surrounding any secret service work that are fueling any mistrust.
my problem with this is that it isnt the populations that have installed cameras everywhere in england to watch the politicians every move..its not us
listening to their telephones and reading their emails...its not us infringing on their rights and their privacy...
the bottom line is...its they who distrust us...and it seems to me that they are either using the conspiracy theory bunk to discredit any reasonable
anti-government sentiment..or..even worse..they have become so accustomed to having control that they actually believe we should trust them at all
times...if thats the case its very scary..
