Jimmy Wales has criticised the UK government for plans to snoop on all internet traffic. One can imagine how this sort of information will be useful to the security forces and police. It is a bit like keeping an eye on every tire impression on the road of every car. Maybe they do that already. No wonder they can not balance the budget. They spend money on reducing freedom and individuality because it is convenient. They have no real idea how expensive this is to the social order and reputation of the West as America and Britain evolve police states.
