Thread: EFF's Master Plan for Ending Global Mass Surveillance

    EFF's Master Plan for Ending Global Mass Surveillance

    This is long but extremely thorough, including recommended tools for personal security and a list of exactly which laws and executive actions need to be changed.


    The National Security Agency is working to collect as much as possible about the digital lives of people worldwide. As the Washington Post reported, a former senior U.S. intelligence official characterized former NSA Director Gen. Keith Alexander's approach to surveillance as "Collect is all, tag it, store it… And whatever it is you want, you go searching for it."


    The NSA can't do this alone. It relies on a network of international partners who help collect information worldwide, especially the intelligence agencies of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom (collectively known, along with the United States, as the "Five Eyes.") In addition, the United States has relationships (including various levels of intelligence data sharing and assistance) with Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Spain, South Korea, Sweden, and potentially a number of other countries worldwide. There are also other countries—like Russia, China, and others—engaging in surveillance of digital communications without sharing that data with the NSA. Some of those governments, including the U.S. government, are spending billions of dollars to develop spying capabilities that they use aggressively against innocent people around the world. Some of them may do so with even less oversight and even fewer legal restrictions.


    Although whistleblowers and journalists have focused attention on the staggering powers and ambitions of the likes of the NSA and GCHQ, we should never assume that other governments lack the desire to join them. Agencies everywhere are hungry for our data and working to expand their reach. Read about international surveillance law reform and fighting back through user-side encryption.


    We focus here on the NSA because we know the most about its activities and we have the most legal and political tools for holding it to account. Of course, we need to know much more about surveillance practices of other agencies in the U.S. and abroad and expand our work together with our partners around the world to confront surveillance as a worldwide epidemic.

    I would be really interested to hear what a progressive like yourself thinks about this. It seems that liberals have mixed feelings about this.

    Really, I have to wonder what happed to college kids and hippies of the 1960s. They don't really protest war, at least like they used to protest. Any outspokenness against surveillance seems to be muted. It seems true of other issues. Their solution against government seems to be more government, but maybe that was always the case.

    What happened to liberal protest against government abuse?

    Well for one thing, the only part of Govt that listens to the people is the Dept of Surveillance. Other than that, they dont give a $#@! about us and do not listen especially when we want them to listen.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    The college kids and hippies of the 60's are now senior citizens who love the security state and the constant wars. They now fall for the media propaganda that these things are necessary to "keep them safe."
