Back to the future

With every terrorist outrage the state responds with increasingly repressive legislation. ID cards, roadpricing satellites tracking every vehicle, and now the suggestion that all private e-mails and mobile telephone conversations could be monitored by the police.

Eric Blair's (no relation) vision of the Big Brother state moves another step towards the thought police. If the purpose of terrorism is to undermine our freedom and democracy... perhap's they're winning.
