Forget terror plots, this is what the spying is really all about. Reports the BBC:
The US authorities have studied online sexual activity and suggested exposing porn site visits as a way to discredit people who spread radical views, the Huffington Post news site has reported.
It published a document, leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, identifying two Muslims said to be vulnerable to accusations of “online promiscuity”.
An official said this was unsurprising.
But campaign group Privacy International called it “frightening”.
The idea that the State must intrude into the furthest corners of our lives to combat terror attacks was always obvious drivel, but then everything the States says is a lie. The gargantuan security state is directed at us, it’s internal enemies, because the State is most paranoid about internal threats against it. The chief threat, of course, is that the people will one day refuse to believe any more of its lies. Once that happens the State is sunk. The State, therefore, will know everything about everyone, all the better to threaten any enemy with ruin, hence the spying. It’s simply arming itself against everyone.
