The Harper government is about to implement sweeping changes to the internet, specifically allowing police and government to spy on Canadians without warrants.
Lawful Access, a series of Tory bills, will force Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to collect and disclose information (name, address, email address) about customers (you and me) to law enforcement (cops and bureaucrats) without a warrant or judicial oversight. And will unleash sweeping warrant powers for police over online communication (emails, Facebook, chat rooms).
At the Davos meeting of the elite and government leaders the validity of capitalist system is being questioned, with that the democratic system of governance must also be questioned.
How can democracy function when governments represent the elite, uber rich, corporations and lobbyists often in contradiction to the wishes and needs of their populace. Capitalism has failed, more correctly it's been corrupted just as democracy has.
The New World Order has come home to roost.
