Do criticize and protest against president Trump. He deserves it.
But do not forget that you were warned against mass surveillance and other forms of Bigbrotherism long before Trump.
When people now react to the Trump-administrations ideas of having all who travel to the US to hand over social media information and cell phone contacts…
Miller also noted on Saturday that Trump administration officials are discussing the possibility of asking foreign visitors to disclose all websites and social media sites they visit, and to share the contacts in their cell phones. If the foreign visitor declines to share such information, he or she could be denied entry.
…they should remember that this is the brainchild of the Obama administration. Then it was voluntarily, but none the less.
A bad idea is a bad idea, whoever comes up with it. This should have been stopped in its tracks, from the beginning.
It’s not about liking or trusting a certain politician or a political party. It’s a matter of principle.
You should never give government tools for mass surveillance (or other tools that can be used to oppress the people) that wouldn’t be safe regardless of whose hands it ends up in.
Ignorance and partisanship brought us here.
And yet, we have no idea of how President Trump is going to use or abuse the powers of the CIA and the technical capabilities of the NSA.
