In England there is an organization named, GCHQ which is engaged in watching us in order to prevent the bad terrorists from killing us. Robert Hennigan who is the head of this spook group is very concerned because technology companies constantly prevent his organization as well as other anti-spook groups like the CIA or NSA from doing their jobs of protecting us against those who will destroy our society. Robert believes that American technology groups hamper the effort to save the free world from those who only desire a sharia world. He wants to engage in a healthy debate about this topic. Fair enough:
1. If we have spooks checking us to ensure that we are not aiding bad folk, then who checks the spooks?
2. What exactly is permissible in the new world of bad and good guys who use technology?
3. Do we have a criteria about what is OK? The US Supreme Court a hundred years ago coined the expression that free speech did not mean one could shout, “fire” in a crowded theater. So, what is the technology limit on free speech?
We certainly need a discussion and some laws in order to address these issues!
