in spring. Not that is completely new to me!
Neither it must be new to people who carry public responsibility. And is there a difference to the “Überwachungsstaat”, practiced what especially the US Media call Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia? The former Agents in leather coats and slouch hats are substituted by algorithm but the result is the same: killing collaterally with brute force.
Surprising is that nobody up till now connected prism with drone. Or is it not comparable because an European or American life counts more than an Iraqi, Afghan or whatsoever third country life? Is there any formula or algorithm? Remarkable is that the international press does not connect these loose ends. They complain locally – nobody sees the worldwide consequences of mankind brought to public by Edward Snowden. And the responsible authorities are not offsetting an illegal action of an individual with illegal Gulag actions of a Government. Astonishing is the arrogance of classification: Whilst prism is to protect the American people so is said, or better expressed American interest; the rest like Europeans, Asians and Africans have no right at all. A rejuvenation of American Manifest Destiny, this historical red thread of American policy. The only difference is that this political formula is applied from continent to continents. The Americans complain their privacy and accept in majority being Orwell-sized. The EEC complains. And what happens the the rest? I strongly recommend to read “Fahrenheit 451” and “1984”. Bradbury observed, let me quote:
In writing the short novel Fahrenheit 451 I thought I was describing a world that might evolve in four or five decades. But only a few weeks ago, in Beverly Hills one night, a husband and wife passed me, walking their dog. I stood staring after them, absolutely stunned. The woman held in one hand a small cigarette-package-sized radio, its antenna quivering. From this sprang tiny copper wires which ended in a dainty cone plugged into her right ear. There she was, oblivious to man and dog, listening to far winds and whispers and soap opera cries, sleep walking, helped up and down curbs by a husband who might just as well not have been there. This was not fiction.

Are we sleep walking as well? Only Fa( r )ce-booking, nonsense chatting to fill a life; not being aware what happened??
By the way my coordinates: 10°1’7.24” N, 84°7’22.41”W, distance from Fort Meade: 2054,69 miles, course: 197°, ballistic flight time: 16 minutes…
and I claim a worldwide 4th amendment.
