MI5 AFTER POWER TO KNOW EVERYTHING
Someone in MI5 needs to start asking , “and might we be doing exactly what the terrorists want us to do?” There is an unholy alliance against aspects of democracy between the security services and Osama bin Laden to create an authoritarian society. Here, a weird article knits together the desire to profile every movement of an individual to see if the computer thinks you look like a terrorist, with the fear of the “cyber war”.
There is a very simple answer to cyber warfare of the type described: an emergency back-up system or two. It does not require further asaults on civil liberties of the vast majority. The purpose of this campaign is to save democracy from the assaults on it by jihadists and others, not to ally with them in that assault [another one of those finals “discuss” questions I keep producing.]
