A huge part...

The largest part of the web users in germany won't be affected by the child-pornography-blockers wich will be installed. So the official statement, why we should have it, even if it is a step into the direction of censorship, providing at least the possibility to block other websites.

The largest part of people will not be affected by the online searches the police is allowed to perform now on any computer without notification. So the official statement, why we should have it even if it is a step into the direction of a surveillance state.

The largest part of people will not be affected by raster-searches,...

It's only about Schadbären and Potential Evildoers. The rhetorics used for things like that is a very interesting thing, as is the logic and the numbers.

Blocking child-porn is a very good thing, people producing shit like this should be tarred and featherd, hung and quartered. But the reaction to this (and most other threads on having a civilised society) is mostly ridiculous and can be mis-used for a lot of things. I don't think it will be misused, I am just annoyed that politicians think we are dumb and throw their stupid rhethorics at us which just turns out to be hot air in the best case or completely wrong and misleading bullsh*t in the worst.

As a resident of the UK, I can absolutely guarantee that the new laws will be misused. And I can also guarantee that people will shrug, and not really question it. I mean, yes, maybe someone is inconvenienced and unfairly has their life ruined, but if you question the law, you must be a paedophile, or a terrorist, right? Right? Shut up, go back to watching television...;-)

it would be a little naive not to be sure that gov./others are going to misuse everything they can get shortly. Kryptikmo took the words earlier.
unfortunatly there's election days in fall and before that they will have some more great ideas like that...
asking what to do? spreading the message is a good way! have to hurry to the tv-box now ;-)
