NSA and the Stasi

An excellent article at CNN, reminding us of what has already past - and which should not be repeated.

For those whose history class stopped at World War 2, the Stasi were the (Communist) East German secret police.

They were charged with monitoring the population for trouble makers (i.e. people who were discontent with their rulers).

They would have given anything for the levels of monitoring now available.
"Unlike the Americans we have experienced the dangers of a nation that condones unchecked state power."
