    SIGH...another week, another batch of illegal cyberspying initiatives disguised as a public service. Sorry if I sound overly cynical but this administration has proven it cannot be trusted, at all, EVER - particularly when it comes to civil liberties and transparency. Everyone have their fine-toothed combs ready?

    Those in high positions of power despise the internet, this is why mega corporations and governments are desperately trying to control the internet. They're trying to make "Thought Crimes" an actual thing, where if you post a negative comment about any ethnic group or governmental policy, you can be detained as a potential "TERRORIST".

    It's absolutely ****ing ridiculous, and want to know what's even more ****ed up? All of these internet controlling policies will probably pass... yeah... want to know why? It's because most of humanity is retarded, most people don't care nor will they do anything about it.

    Get ready to see the most controlled, police state surveillance society the planet has ever seen. You won't be able to have your own personal thoughts without it being monitored 24/7 and judged constantly by the people you vote for.

    Good job humanity.
