This report from Daily Mail confirms that the British Military had launched a covert operation to spy on British citizens who criticized lockdowns. Part of the operation was surveillance of politicians such as ex-Minister David Davis and several high-profile journalists.
The information collected by the military in their operations was used to push social media platforms to censor posts that were not in line with the government-approved narrative. It has also allowed a military department to deploy “non-lethal engagement and legitimate non-military levers as a means to adapt behaviors of adversaries’.
Editor’s Note: What was the legal basis for the military to engage in the surveillance of law-abiding citizens who criticize an illogical government policy? If the military can use its intelligence network to keep lockdown critics in check, there is no doubt that it will keep abusing this capacity to spy on their citizens.
Governments are openly violating the constitutionally-guaranteed right to privacy. They are also weaponizing the data of citizens to inform their propaganda machines which is in no way aligned with the benefit and the will of citizens. Do we really think that they will stop these illegal activities when they think that citizens will be complacent, just as most have been in the past three years? If we don’t push back against surveillance and control, we can only expect the creation of more policies that are anti-freedom.
