The right to Privacy for All

Open letter to the Police State and its supporters,

The right to privacy is a basic human need – as is the right to mingle with others freely. This is at the very foundation of human life – and maybe life it self. I believe we call it it freedom in the human world.

Imagine a world where privacy is no longer possible. Whatever you do, whatever you say, where ever you go, with whom you are together is recorded and stored centrally by a National Security Agency in a Police State.

It is no longer possible to have a private conversation with a friend without the Police State listens in, record and store your conversation. And you even have to worry about friends backgrounds because your very association with them is on public record. Its no longer possible to help a friend, talk to your neighbor, do business in privacy because all is on public record.

Your hobbies, interests, readings, private life and political views is recorded, analyzed and stored. Your eating habits, your consumption of unhealthy foods, alcohol and drugs are recorded. Your childhood, adolescence, adult life and family history now also belongs to the Police State. Even your sexual preference is on public record for safety reasons. Your medical record, health history and genetic make up belongs to the archives in the Police State. And all your private property and significant belongings is under constant surveillance by the National Security Agency.

For public safety reasons in the Police State the National Security Agency pieces every imaginable sort of information it can collect about you together and fits it into a complete and auto updated profile on you. The Police State will hold such records for themselves on all citizens of the world.

Just imagine this!

Now realize that this scenario is very close to the reality we currently live in or at least realize that is a near likely future of the world.

To be able to spy on all citizens in the world in all aspects without limitation of any kind is the aspiration, hopes and dreams of almost every National Security Agency all over the world!

How can this kind of surveillance power only exist for the safety of the public when it belongs to the few in power?

This is ‘not something I’m willing to live under’!

I will rather live with uncertainty, insecurity and fear in a fragile democracy, than live in a certain, secure and peaceful surveillance Police State. I object to the idea of a Police State. And I will work against the realization of a world wide Police State.

We No Longer Trust Google

Who is lurking in the darkness? Google is lurking the darkness as Gmonster if you ask me, friends of the Internet as well as quite a few grand organizations, legislators, government officials around the world dealing with privacy, security and data protection issues.

Recently Google has been caught with their cute innocent Googli map cars sucking the data right out private WiFi networks around the globe in big citys. Reluctantly Google has admitted to this infringement on peoples privacy and has come up with an apology to the citizens of the World Wide Web. Google did not tell the whole truth at first. Google softly claims it to be an error of some unknowing technician. Ha ha.. Is this a joke!?

This mishap might end up having devastating consequences for Google. And this is not the only report about dodgy Google behavior. Google is known to suppress and censor certain undesirable data. Google sniff search keywords not yet submitted in search fields. Google does things to your gmail account you do not even wanna hear about. It all adds up. On behalf of the people of the Internet:

WE NO LONGER TRUST GOOGLE!
