The Electronic Police State 2008 National Rankings


Most of us are aware that our governments monitor nearly every form of
electronic communication. We are also aware of private companies doing
the same. This strikes most of us as slightly troubling, but very few of us
say or do much about it. There are two primary reasons for this:
1. We really don’t see how it is going to hurt us. Mass surveillance is
certainly a new, odd, and perhaps an ominous thing, but we just
don’t see a complete picture or a smoking gun.
2. We are constantly surrounded with messages that say, “Only crazy
people complain about the government.”
However, the biggest obstacle to our understanding is this:
The usual image of a “police state” includes secret police dragging people
out of their homes at night, with scenes out of Nazi Germany or Stalin’s
USSR. The problem with these images is that they are horribly outdated.
That’s how things worked during your grandfather’s war – that is not how
things work now.
An electronic police state is quiet, even unseen. All of its legal actions are
supported by abundant evidence. It looks pristine.
