Are we a democracy?
We the people want this?
I don't f'ing think so.

These laws aren't for terrorism, they are to entrench a new elite class that has pilfered their way to the top, but keep getting exposed by whistle blowers (these are who the real targets are).

Of course this is not for the terrorism. It is an excuse for economic espionage which will help them to keep their dominance. Hopefully the other G20 peoples will understand that when someone steals their secrets that will hurt at least as much as the terrorism does.

These people are so stupid. They want all these special back doors and key proxies....all they're doing is making their own selves easier to hack. The same Windows computers, iPhones, and Android phones they want back doors into, they're using themselves. Hackers will have access to all their dirty secrets.

Not all have, but those that haven't been exposed, have the luxury of hiding inside the U.N.

... and they won't stop there until a one government to rule them all (a singe global government) is fully formed, ratified, and all nations surrender their sovereignty to it... with themselves within it.

Who says that they, themselves with all their own secrets, won't have a hidden cut-out for themselves to be exempt. (those at the tippy-top that is.)

Just like trump learned that mass surveillance can affect even his own king's court, they'll end up learning when it's used against them. At which point, they will indeed, carve out a special exemption for themselves, but not for citizens, while ignoring that the "terrorists" aren't going to use that hardware.

I actually consider this a First Amendment issue. If campaign finance is considered a protected form of speech, why isn't data encryption?

And by mandating these backdoors, politicians around the world are just making it easier for Russian & other hackers to mess with their elections.

Exactly what does this have to do with the UN?

The UN is basically a talking shop. It also does some human rights stuff, like sending peace keepers into war-torn countries and running refugee camps. And occasionally passes meaningless resolutions. That's it. I really think you have nothing to fear from it.

Wow, you really don't get it. Conspiracy theories are fun in movies and games, but they're not meant to be taken seriously.

Basically nobody wants it to get more powerful, because politicians in every country are interested in maximizing their own influence, which would be reduced if the UN were to become more powerful.

In fact, the only countries with any real interest in the UN's influence are the Five permanent members of the Security Council, and even they disagree enough that I don't think they want it to be any more powerful than it already is.

Try using some common sense.

Maybe you should take a closer look at them.
