One comment on “The state’s paranoia machine

  1. What is the end goal?

    Fighting terror? No, this is using terror to build more terror. If all terrorism was eliminated, they would need a new enemy to justify their existence.

    Track all the internet traffic to find terrorists? This is impossible. The volume would flood any centralized system. But this is closer to the actual driver of this push.

    Sell expensive security systems to the US Government? Bingo! The data used is generated by contractors. The laws are being written by corporate lawyers. Interpretation is being done my lobbiests with expensive gifts.

    Just like the massive failure of the central database for the FBI, this is another ploy to sell a bad system to the government. Will any useful information be harvested? I doubt it. Will any of our tax dollars be wasted? I expect it.
