When Americans are displeased with their politicians, they like to threaten to move to Canada. But if you’re tempted to move north—or even further afield—to get away from plans for increased Internet surveillance by the government, think again. Controversial new surveillance laws proposed in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia have quite a bit in common. And it’s no coincidence.

Over the past few months, authorities in these countries have separately been arguing the case for expanded power to monitor Internet communications. Changes could include making it mandatory for social networks and online chat providers to build in back doors for law enforcement eavesdropping and instituting so-called “deep packet inspection” technology to enable monitoring and interception of data.

The plans have prompted an outpouring of negative reaction, much of it centered on concerns about government invading Internet users’ privacy. But what has gone largely unremarked upon is the role played by little-known networks of telecom companies and international government agencies, which have been quietly collaborating to reform surveillance laws so that they are “harmonized” to a similar standard from country to country.

In cities across the world, groups composed of telecom companies and government representatives have met to discuss how to integrate surveillance capabilities into existing and developing technologies. The decisions they have made, largely beyond public scrutiny, could lead to a fundamental shift in the Web’s basic architecture.

I have a friend who doesn't have a computer, doesn't want a computer and isn't interested in using one. When I read reports like this about the government and business forces lined up against the citizens I sometimes get discouraged and think he might have a point.

Yup.

I'll put on my tin hat for a second and mention that I wouldn't want a life without a computer for fear of raising government suspicion. 

Honestly though, we're all just a number.  I'm on somebodies watch list.  So is everybody here.   :suspious:

I'm on santa's list, I just don't know which one

I'm on my own list at the moment.  Santa is a close second.

Big Santa is watching you, to see if you've been naughty or nice.
