One major assault against liberty over the last two years has been the steady erosion of online privacy. From Obama’s ‘kill switch’, to ACTA, SOPA and PIPA, to stasi tactics against people like Kim Dotcom, hardly a month goes by without some major action against Internet users.
It’s really getting absurd.
Perhaps the biggest looming threat to our online privacy is the yet-to-be-completed NSA data-centre, located in the middle of the Utah desert. We’ve discussed this many times before, and in case you’re not familiar, I recommend checking out this excellent report from Wired magazine.
Bottom line, people won’t be able to utter a single word or bit of data anymore, anywhere in the world, without it being monitored and stored by Uncle Sam.
