    I get less worried about the NSA following me than I get creeped out by the close monitoring of my activities by online sites like Facebook and Amazon. I make a purchase, and minutes later an ad for it shows up in my timeline. Scary to think of how much information they glean from us.

    Speaking of Amazon, thank you so much for the review of Eating Bull! I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks so much for your support!

    It’s the kind of thing I expect us Brits to do, allow the Government to lie through it’s teeth to us so we accept the kind of Draconian laws we could get with internet ‘oversight’. It’s not the kind of thing I expect from Australia and I don’t for one minute think you’ll let yourselves be misled.
    Please show us the way and stop us from letting the side down for personal freedoms long fought for.

    So true that politicians have been playing the Fear Card to make us more malleable. Another thing that has been a recurring theme is the Nationalism Card, another aspect of fear; to fear the other. Part of the problem is that we have no decent opposition, either in parliament or out of it.

      You’re so right about Nationalism being another aspect of fear, and politicians have been hitting us over the head with it since time immemorial.

      The Daughter and I kind of like Daniel Andrews here in Vic, but over in Canberra? Dumb and Dumber. 😦

    And as has been so evident from the recent Paris terrorism attacks electronic surveillance isn’t fool proof. There are no short cuts to effective and hands on intelligence and monitoring.
