Re: [tor-talk] Why the US Government funds circumvention projects (Like Tor)
That's great. At the same time many govts allow mobile providers to
track users, even by longitude / latitude.
I light of the recent discussions regarding governments funding projects
like Tor, I thought this article might be of interest.
U.S. develops "panic button" for democracy activists
If mobile providers have the technology or are allowed to, so can govts.
I sleep better at night just knowing (any) govt has its (& other
countries') citizens' best interests at heart. (little sarcasm). A
govt's word is as good as gold - they've never lied (from beginning of
recorded history), have they?
I am a little concerned though, about the US violating the constitution
in numerous ways to spy on citizens in numerous ways. (remember the
congressional hearings on telephone & internet?) If you want to know
what (any) govt's up to, have to go elsewhere & dig deep for news &
insight, not depend on info from the govt(s), nightly news or
newspapers. Don't ask the fox guarding the hen house how things are.
Something is only a conspiracy theory when no facts, evidence (or
sometimes even common sense about it) exist.
