Quietly Snitching Your Privacy

By November 30, 2012

Follow me on:

While we are debating various laws and government policies that have little (or no) impact in our lives, there are other laws that are quietly being voted on and moved through the process that could have dramatic impact on our personal privacy, and how we live our lives. For example, HR 2471 gives law enforcement unlimited access to your personal emails without a warrant.

Stuff like this receives little attention from the mainstream media for some reason, and pointing these bills out doesn't make one well-liked in certain circles. But this quiet erosion of privacy being handed to law enforcement should be of great concern, because the less control we have on our personal information, the greater our risks become.
