17TH JULY 2014 - The UK Government has used the public's loathing of child abusers to shoehorn in, literally overnight, a new 1984 Total Surveillance law - DRIP - which requires all telephone and internet providers to retain all records of all telecoms and internet use on all citizens, in perpetuity. And, of course, to give total access to government agencies. This contrasts with German Chancellor Angela Merkel's and EU demands that the US (and the UK) stop meta-data and personal e-spying on family, friends and foes alike.

Conservative PM, David Cameron, insists that he and DRIP are keeping us all safe in beds - safe from Terrorists and Sex Abusers; and that "IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, then you have nothing to fear" - the assurance offered by all mad dictators and secret police. This coincides with a new inquiry into sex abuse by senior UK political figures - allegedly including top Tory figures - who among other unpleasant habits beat and sodomised little boys trapped in government "Care Homes", from about 1950 to date; probably all Friends of Jimmy Savile.

To demonstrate the urgent need for DRIP, UK police have, on the same day the snooping law was passed, arrested 660 UK pedophiles who have been accessing and swapping vile images of abused children. Only 39 of those arrested were previously on the Sex Offenders register. A police investigator for OPERATION NOTARISE said there are 50,000 Brits who use such illegal criminal pornography. An academic expert from UCL, on BBC Newsnight 16th July, claimed that 1 in 6 UK children are sexually abused; which is so unlikely that he ought to check his data and insane calculations.

FUTURIST VIEW - So, what are the consequences? Government will know what all citizens are doing on-line and no records will be deleted. Any attempt to block surveillance and keep business confidential will be an immediate target for zealous snoopers. This will accelerate the growth of the unhackable (so far) INTERNET 2 called MESHNET and other wireless networks. It will also enable TAX COLLECTORS to gather cast iron evidence of tax and money frauds going back decades, which will cause a run on the world's 74 tax-havens. On-shoring will greatly accelerate from now - in 2014. For child-abusers, terrorists and tax-evaders there is nowhere safe to hide.

As the UK, USA and other governments legitimise their Total Internet Surveillance, the privacy debate heats up.

The untainted self-righteous preach that only wicked people with sins to hide fear routine, constant interception. I am easily persuaded that Internet bullies, trolls, terrorists, deranged psychopaths, financial crooks, organised criminals,  bankers, main board directors, the inevitable alleged gangs of paedophiles who allegedly threaten all our children, bent coppers, dissembling politicians, election riggers, evil gossips, commercial cheats, war mongers, peddlers of fat-killer-foods and other dangerous addictive drugs - and all habitual sinners, should be monitored, punished, banished, beaten, beheaded, have their naughty bits cut-off and be cast into the exterior darkness.

But, one person’s sins are another’s radical rights. Should Islamic Sharia Law govern the Internet? So, I am equally easily persuaded that ordinary citizens have rights to communicate without being spied on; that the Internet is like the road networks that all can travel on without moral judgement; that many governments are malign, much of the time, and cannot be trusted with our personal data; that intrusive corporations will spy on our health, habits, finances, wants and needs and tediously, incessantly target us; that employers and other authorities will secretly auto-judge us via mad-mathematicians’ algorithms and block the progress of all eccentrics.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN? Governments and humans have forever spied on fellow citizens. Whispering conspirators were eavesdropped, letters were intercepted, war radio signals and codes were broken, rooms and phones were bugged, tracking devices put in cars, and etc – and thus many traitors, Enemies of The State and Ungodly Heretics were tortured, burned and otherwise discouraged.  But modern blanket surveillance and data capture is of a different order – and yet is inevitable as long as civil-servants exist and have tax-revenues to deploy. The response will be cyber-war with non-hackable new Internets, evolving to counter each excess of surveillance until a balance is reached between sin and privacy.  As the world is full of loonies, many hearing messages from diverse assorted gods, (about 49.5% are currently deranged) the cyber-war will span many decades – even centuries – until evolution creates The Next Generation – those without Stain or Sin.
