On May 11, 2022, the EU will publicize a proposal for a law on mandatory chat control. The European Commission wants all providers of email, chat and messaging services to search for suspicious messages in a fully automated way and forward them to the police in the fight against child pornography.

[...] Similar developments are taking place in the US and the supporting narrative has expanded from domestic terrorism to other illegal content and activity, such as child sexual exploitation and abuse, terrorism, foreign adversaries‚ and attempts to undermine democratic values and institutions.

[...] What most, if not all, of these activities have in common is that you usually won't see the criminals using the same platforms as those of us that want to stay in touch with friends and relatives. They are already conducting their "business" in illegal marketplaces on the Dark Web, or they are using encrypted phone services.

[...] Since client-side scanning technologies may represent the most powerful surveillance system ever imagined, it is imperative that we find a way to make them abuse-resistant and auditable before we decide to start using them. Failures from the past have taught us that it's often the other way around. We learn from our mistakes, but how costly are they?

    This joins my list of things people will do that someone else doesn't want them to do...

    + Pee in the pool

    + Violate copyright

    + Lie

    + Didn't Park in a designated area.

    + Smoked

    + DisRespect Authority.

    We are basically instructing everyone to do as you will, no such thing as ethics or accountability to God... All that matters is don't get caught.

    Which God? Think carefully about how you answer this one, with respect to morality...

      Which God?

      The one living rent free in your head.

      Whoops, time to check /r/atheism for today's latest hate on Christians and Jews.

      So many occultists, agnostics, atheists, all have God living rent free in their minds and many probably think more about "God" than some believers do.

      A pity.

        Do you really think you are the victim?

        Honestly?

        Religious nut cases blowing up / shooting up buildings, planes, trains, schoolyards and everyone in them. Religious politicians supporting illegal wars of aggression against Muslim nations, e.g., in the words of Baby Bush, "[The war against Iraq was] a Crusade". Bible thumpers banning books from public libraries and schools. Church ladies on school boards forcing adoption of text books that denigrate science and critical thinking. Jesus freaks murdering physicians and kidnapping their families. Religious crazies getting elected into public office by religious mobs where they shit all over things and try to oppress people of the "wrong" religion / no religion. Oppressing people who just want to mind their own business, but christian fascists try to make their relationships illegal. Religious business owners who force their beliefs on their employees by e.g., restricting the medical procedures / medicines their employer sponsored health plans offer. Christians, pretending to be teachers, trying to force their religious bullshit on students in public schools (personal experience, twice).

        You currently have a supreme court justice who was a member of a christian cult where her title was, "handmaiden". Really. Fucking, "handmaiden". You have a serial rapist and drunk that you also got appointed to the court to "do gods work". They are in the process of stripping rights of 50% of the US population in support of your sky fairy nonsense. You completely control one of the major political parties in the US, and have major influence on the other.

        But *you* are the victim? Get a fucking grip.

            They generally give Muslims a pass. It's the same with other fields in the occult too, you know, they give all of these "spiritualists" a pass. But not God, as He is sealed in their minds forever and they cannot stand it. 24/7, rent free. They love to bury posts which disagree with theirs, "if you can't get the message, get the man."

            There is only one person running around and screaming about something in his mind so far, and that person is you. How long you've been hearing those voices in your head? Have you tried to seek some help and/or therapy?

        Source isn't conscious the way we think of it though? It's more like the ontological ground of consciousness and the prerequisite for the same...

          Whatever keeps you from peeing in the pool and defrauding widows and orphans is fine by me. If God doesn't do that much for you, then what's the point of giving him a second thought?

          I like to think of it as a "field," some kind of intrinsic love field. Vibrations in the love field have awareness, but they are not capable of cognition. These vibrations could evolve in symbiosis with material life. Just a conjecture.

      You're over-thinking things.

      OP didn't even specify *whose* pool was being peed in. If that attention to detail is lacking, there's no need to read any further.
