Skal i Deadline 22.30 på DR2 om terrorlovgivningen. Jeg mener, at vi er gået alt for langt. Med terrorlovgivningen begik man i realiteten vold på det, man forsøgte at beskytte – demokratiet.

@ Pernille Skipper og alle andre.

Morten Bødskovs stråmands-tågesnaks-argumenter fik det til at løbe koldt ned af ryggen på mig, da det mindede mig om et interview med Kevin Mitnick (En berømt hacker) fra 2003, hvor han siger nogle meget signifikant, og som kan siges, ordret, stadig her 9 år senere, i 2012.

“Kevin Mitnick: I think in this post-9/11 world that our government, the people in the DoJ (Department of Justice, det amerikanske justitsministerium, red.), are really exploiting this tragedy to get more power under the pretense that it is to fight terrorism. They are trying to get a lot of power to surveil United States citizens with very little or no judicial review. It is concerning to me, because each and every time we as Americans, in trying to achieve better security because of the fear of terrorism, each and every time we give up a civil liberty, we will never get it back.

And then I think about, why, when the government is asking for additional power, why do they not ask for that additional power for a very limited period of time. They say, well the fight against terrorism is going to go on indefinitely, it is never going to be over. Just like the war on drugs, it is still going on today, it is never going to be over. So it really concerns about how easily people are willing to give up these rights.

Interviewer (Emmanuel Goldstein): Well it is because of fear, because people are afraid, they are willing to give up rights because of what will happen …

Mitnick: They are willing to give up their privacy in exchange for feeling more secure, but once you give up those privacy rights, you will never EVER get them back, period.”
