Thank you, sjkted, for those expanded personal views.
(also nice to hear you on the pub-chat)
Might be more important to understand each other,
than to necesseraly, initialy, absolutely agree on all.
Thread title and Opening Post threw my first response
a bit askew. So I will try again, anew, right now :
A few years ago the european data registry directive,
was implemented in europe and in my own country...
Law forcing storage of all data-internet and mobile phone
activity. Not content, for now .., all web-activity, with IPs,
And who you are talking to on the phone, messaging,
when, where and how long. Stored for 6 months, for now
For every norwegian citizen ( European Directive nr ..).
So how is this relevant to OP ?
In my view, somehow it is.
Of course there was a long "democratic" process
and discussion of if or in what way that EU- directive
should be implemented in norwegian regulations.
Initialy the EU-directive, telling all associate state to
implement the data-storage directive into local law,
was a side effect of USA inc.pr. 11th sept. 2001.
Anti-Terror law from that "historic event" ( ..... )
Brought to us (Norway) by the "European Union" .
The Terror-angle of the law was not catching on
here, and were both emotionaly and intellectualy
picked apart and discarded, by a majority of
highly qualified persons, groups, institutions, ..
involved in evaluating and "reviewing" that law.
Then the matter went quiet for some weeks, and
a couple of months before the voting in the
Norwegian Parliament ( local councile )
there suddenly a lot of mainsteam press
on issues like Childabuse and Internet porn ..
If we can save one child , or catch an
offender and save more than one, is
that worth deeming all potentialy guilty ?
( and monitor them all, for the better of ..).
That is one excample of the new arguement.
Over some weeks "they" managed to turn
popular opinion around, and pass that law,
by mainly using the highly understandable and
honorable common (sense) instinct to protect
our children, and all needed to be all well .
( and then ..).
In the end it was hard to argue against that law
of individual detailed common surveilance without
looking like a freak, approving the abuse of kids.
A mess of fact and fiction, emotion and effects ...
multiplied a by media and shocked communities.
This subject is a very potential political "tool"
So we should realy try to shine a light of
mind reason and just heart, and more, on this.
" Allways is forgiveness and understanding better..".
Hopefully neither the buggars or the beggars
carry all of the "thruth" ( that what is ..).
Enough for now.
Plan, and hope to
come back here
with a new post
my research .
And further thoughts on
this important topic .
Be well to each other .
- please .
