Josh Sigurdson reports on recent news out of Australia as the Aussie government pushes to implement a bill that would force individuals to give the government their phone password or face up to 10 years in prison.
The new “Assistance and Access” bill is out for consultation currently and is very likely to pass. The excuses used for this bill are the usual excuses one would expect for such an intrusion. The most horrific crimes one can imagine. They use these examples to pull at people’s heart strings so they accept terrible laws. Overall, this is going to negatively effect people’s privacy and then the privacy of their phone or facebook contacts. It’s the unrolling of the red carpet towards a social credit score system that no cashless society would be complete without and Australia is certainly pushing a technocratic agenda full speed ahead.
Interesting that the Australian government is all caught up with this as a so-called priority while the housing bubbles in Sydney and Perth expand all while their economy is on the brink of disaster. But of course this is more important, right?
The usual absurdity of government.
Stay tuned for more from WAM!
