    It is impossible to put the genie back in the bottle. Once the hardware and software were developed to enable the type of spying we are talking about, it will be used. No matter what sort of restrictions are placed on it's use, there are always bad actors who will find a way around those restrictions. Welcome to our brave new world.

    True. . .

    I think the power to log in and search those records should be put into all citizens hands if it is available to anyone though.

    Imagine what an honest world we would have if there were no privacy and everyone were telepathic? :dunno:


    If intelligence agencies can watch all the citizens, should all the citizens be able to watch the communications of all the CEO and politicians in their nation?


    Would you just love to eves drop on Biden, Trump, member of congress, etc?

    How about the leaders or these corporations like FB and Google? :auiqs.jpg:


    You know they are watching the metadata of the populace.

    If you become a target by high level officials, not only can they go back and find every communication you ever made, but they can essentially watch everything you do in real time. Snowden mentioned that 7 or 8 years ago.

    Rich, Hastings, Mifsud....they found out the hard way. At least Snowden made it to Russia.
