This will give decision makers EXACTLY what they WANT.
Those who have already given up democracy think that way.
I don't want to get into any
"conspiracy theory" - either one thinks that way or doesn't, but if you
look at the patterns, then let's just say that strong interest groups
somehow always seem to get past these democratic barriers to create
situations in which they can generate profit.
"conspiracy theory"?? "let's just say"??
That happens. It is, say, a fact.
Fortunately, most of the
time they still need to play for the public and ask "nicely" first
before they can do whatever they damn well please.
Corporations do whatever they please, and that is achieved through
propaganda, which in turn, prepares the masses to think they are being

Yes, it's getting internationally worst. Search for ACTA.
One crackdown we're living in. Goal is: keeping knowledge away from the people.
Yes, we have such thing

self-interest also exists in officials, and it can be exploited.
And non-officials can react to that.
Lately, after Wikipedia and many others stood by the people, peacefully

Quite simply, elected ones got afraid of not being
re-elected, or just going too far and getting into something they cannot
handle with a popular face. They appeared to have no "valid" moral
reason anymore to cooperate with the passing, so they bailed out.
That is not democracy but a rotten representative system. Masses were
taught to accept it as fair.
But these interest groups know that officials also have a
mandate to protect "security", which is a largely different matter.
Man, why you keep separating "officials" from "interest groups"? They
are the same thing. SAME THING.
they can picture it so that security's being violated somehow, and start
making enough noise about "security" and telling people that "you could
be attacked next" as so on, then quite simply, people will start
demanding them to do whatever they wanted to do in the first place.
Conglomerates' propaganda indoctrinates most of the people to see
insecurity and fear where and when is appropriate.
