Swedish ‘Big Brother’ rears it’s ugly face!

June 23, 2008

George Orwell must be turning in his grave after hearing that the Swedish Riksdagen has legalized the ‘penultimate’ decimation of western democracy. All content and communication, private or otherwise, emails, telephone calls, Facebook, IM,  are to be scruitinized by Forsvarets Radioanstalt (FRA), and suspected deviants of terrorism and sexual & financial depravity will be incarcerated without trial in the Swedish Archipelago. (did I say Gulag Archipelago (Russian: Архипелаг ГУЛАГ)  see Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn). Most telecom traffic through Telias’ network outside Sweden must transit Swedish cyberspace en route to  all other nations. I dare not risk  my private emails becoming the property of religious zealots in the Riksdagen, so I have cancelled my ISP service with immediate effect, and I am now forced to use my neighbours wireless LAN (with his approbation), until I figure out who will guarantee my privacy!. Per Kølle of DKHostmaster the national Danish domain registrar, has similarly warned all Danish Companies to avoid contact with Swedish ISP’s, or get a decent encryption capability. Who suggested  state sponsored industrial espionage is a falacy? Now I know why the Irish voted no to Lisbon- the real fear is that this social disease could spread to the bureaucrats in Brussels. Interestingly not one non-Swedish Government leader has openly castigated this incursion of human rights. However they have threatened 55.000 housewives (most farmers) for voting no.
