The Justice Dept is petitioning the FCC to get much more access to your broadband and/or internet connectivity. The idea is that they need to prevent terrorists who might be avoiding surveillance by using internet telephony – which makes for a compelling argument until you ask yourself: Well, which of our freedoms couldn’t ultimately benefit a terrorist?. If the FCC goes along, what it means is that investigators will be able to essentially tap into everything you type, everything you receive and every site you visit. And when it comes to the latter, let’s be realistic. Electablog ain’t your problem.
