Funny, for all surveillance, Osama bin Laden is still free — and we’re not. Guess who’s winning the “war on terror?” – Cory Doctorow

Today is “Dark Future Day”. Its scaring me. Check the news: As you probably know, everybody within the European Union has every use of a telecomincation device (mobile, computer) safed and made accessible by the government. Not the content of your conversion, but date, time, length, sender, receiver. Also logged: Every station your mobile phone registered with. That’s scary allready, but no longer a news. New is:

Cory is right. Osama bin Laden wins the fight agains Freedom. And we voted those who help him into power. I wonder if he can stop laughing at us?

    What can I say, Holy Shit? :)

    BTW, freakin’ scary. Even Philip K. Dick never had such nightmares like this.

    Dagenhams last blog post..Nine Inch Nails – Ghosts

  3. @Dagenham: It feels like a nightmare… sanity starts slipping into the darkness, and you are helpless. Even the weirdo creationist vs evolution debate has now picked up by some politicans!!

    Toto, this ain’t Kansas anymore…
