We have to be sceptical when it comes to the state and the authoritys, to stand by the wording of the protocol. The Swedish state and by law implemented mass surveillance of the public is deepening, rather than under political and public controle. With less tranceparency when the secret police (Säpo) want´s automatic and unhindred full access (Maintrac), to trafic and content data via the EU blanket data retention and the secret military surveillance authority FRA, and as such from the 5eyes network. With a direct cooperation with the US surveillance authority the NSA.
