In Germany, the BKA law has just been passed
, enabling secret (!) online searches of your PC. In Austria, now all people linked to illegal drug use will be recorded into a database
accessible by most authorities. Even people only accused of such activities, even if falsely accused! The european union refuses to release secret Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement documents
. Basically, they are negotiating agreements which affect all of our lifes and refuse to tell us what they are doing there. In the UK the security agencies demand laws for media censorship
. And Shell now has received a 25 year monopoly on all southern Iraq's natural gas
. WTF. So all this is called democracy, right?
Summary: The world is evil. Fucked up, stupid and evil. I nearly had pushed this to the back of my mind, but now it's there, back again.
