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?

    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.

    Oh, so you're okay with the Muslim religious belief that you need to be disemboweled?

      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."

    You can bury posts as much as you want but it won't remove GOD from your mind.

      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?
