Anders Breivik en de grenzen van de surveillance

Breivik, les limites de la surveillance (Olivier Tesquet voor en Security Theater Lessons From Utøya (Rick Falkvinge van de Zweedse Pirate Party):

We now have wanton en-masse ubiquitious wiretapping in Europe (specifically Sweden), explicitly for national security purposes, which would pick up a lot of what is said and spoken in Norway as well. We have individual location tracking of all citizens. Still, for all this surveillance which is the most extensive in human history, it was utterly and totally useless.

If we cannot prevent an event like Utøya, the worst killing spree ever in world history and the worst terrorist act in entire Europe in two decades, by any means conceivable — why are we playing this security theater and giving up hard-won civil liberties one after another?
