People already get away with bad things.
Anonymous managed to take down a massive pedo ring that the police around the world couldn't touch. And we're supposed to believe these laws are
intended to "protect" people? Not a chance.
The gov in the UK is also now planning to extend their monitoring, recording every single connection on the internet, and opening content at will.
There are already a lot of methods to become anonymous on the internet, regardless of this snooping. Are we supposed to believe that people who want
to communicate secretly cannot use encryption methods?
These methods are not intended to prevent crime or terrorism. If you are engaged in either you can simply go off the radar using a proxy or a "book"
encryption that NO AGENCY can hack.
What these measures will do is allow governments to intercept, monitor and prevent the democratic process of rallying the people for protest. This is
intended to be used to prevent domestic unrest, to stop people from being able to organize peaceful protest around the world.
It is no coincidence that just as the economy tanks, and as we're expecting the Euro to collapse, that the UK government now wants total control over
who communicates with who, when, and why. They know that massive social unrest is coming, and that the two-party system is finally at risk. The PTB
cannot afford to let the people create their own parties, without influence of the elites, and actually lead their own nations - they would loose
their control over entire nations.
If you have any doubt about this, just look at the infiltration of existing peaceful protest groups over the last ten years. This has been going on
for a long time and they admit it.
They will be using these methods to stop you from going to that rally to call for democratically elected government, not to stop you from acting
