My government (I'm Dutch) is building their own NSA.

This stuff blows my mind. A nice background article can be found using google translate here: http://translate.google.nl/translate?sl=nl&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=nl&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ftweakers.net%2Freviews%2F3337%2F1%2Fnieuwe-wetgeving-nederland-bouwt-aan-zijn-eigen-nsa-inleiding.html&act=url
While everyone is outraged over the NSA revelations, my government wants to extend their wiretapping laws so it can reach NSA proportions. The laws are not even changed yet, but recently they already purchased the equipment to allow extended data analysis.
Also, you have to give them credits for their lack of care: “The secret services are not interested in your private conversations”.
Anyways, i have no idea where to go next with this. Will people protest? I’d like to join them. I can do all these computer tricks to just encrypt everything, but clearly this is a political issue also. We’re turning into a surveillance state here.
