Reassuring that none of the western countries would never do anything dubious or immoral innit .
More interesting than the article is the comment by Aaron Lowe 14 Nov 2017 3:01PM


The UK is one of the leaders in this field and has been since the world wars. WW2 was partly won due to an effective propaganda machine. Do you really think they just shut it down afterwards?

The NSA is probably the most effective propaganda machine in the world. It has the greatest powers and the furthest reach. With GCHQ, the NSA is able to record 100% of all communication using technology for the whole of the UK and the USA and most of the rest of the world.

Every second of every call, every frame of every CCTV camera (connected to a computer), every text and every email (whether decrypted or not) is all syphoned up into a massive database that they can utilise for any means, including the manipulation of world events. They can even eavesdrop via TVs, mobiles and, can you believe it, some vibrators. Women - think the inside of your vagina is private? It's not any more. A major manufacturer was caught hacking into them just yesterday. NSA do this automatically to all reachable tech, whether airgapped or not.



Bill Maher a few weeks back mentioned a Russian troll army still fighting the cold war...
