Last november, the UK passed the “Snoopers Charter” (Investigatory Powers Act; 2016). It allows the Government to vaccuum up personal information at an unprecedented level. To what end? The usual rationales are trotted out: “The War on Terror” and the pseudo-rationale of “If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear”. But, doesn’t that outlook basically accuse everybody of being a Terrorist &/or a Criminal? Is not being falsely accused of something – or even being stitched up for something you didn’t do a cause for worry – something to fear? Then, there is the “Minority Report” thing; using past Information to “predict” future miscreant behaviour. Trust me when i say that there are no Psychological Models that are sophisticated or advanced enough to make those kinds of Predictions; let alone using ESP skills.
