Here’s my thoughts on the current Swedish “wire-tapping” law (FRA lagen)
The Swedish society today is perfect in many ways, but not when it comes to integrity, we live in a society under constant wire-tapping. Where if you do as little as nag about your work, can get you in jail for terrorism, where the communications privacy does not comply with e-mail or SMS. There’s something i want to change, bring down this stupid law and expand the communications privacy to all electronic communication. A woman buys a pack of Marlboro on a gas station, using her credit card, and then she receives “quit smoking” ads in her mailbox .
I dream of a society where people who are worried about their integrity can stay calmed, you should have the right to be anonymous if you want to, your email and your text messages should not be logged and be visible to the governments eyes. We cannot have a working society where the people are under constant wire-tapping, everyone has something to hide, that embarrassing thing that happened during your party get’s out in an email, that get’s read by the government eyes.
