Part of the series: Privacy and Security

In this open series, you can contribute shows that are on the topic of Privacy and Security

Back in 2001 there was a certain incident on September 11 that lead many people to go OMG! We are doomed! We must increase security! Do whatever it takes! And the NSA was happy to oblige. And on 7/7/05 an attack in London added to the frenzy.

To be clear, security agencies are always pushing the limits, it is in their DNA. And politicians have learned that you never lose votes by insisting on stronger security and appearing tough. - For more go to http://www.zwilnik.com/?page_id=577
