Well naturally, if they remove the terrorists ability to use social media then they cannot target all those dangerous fringe groups that use it as well, by claiming that its to fight terrorism while trampling on the rights of others.
groups like protesters, whistleblowers, porn industry workers, political dissenters, basically anyone and any group that the government decides they don't like what they say act or do.
how does a criminal gang end up getting its court precedings sealed? Are they supporting terrorism now or are people just supposed to expect secret courts with secret evidence and secret verdicts in every day court cases that have nothing to do with national security and everything to do with jailing people just because they have the power to do so with next to no versight
That would assume the people behind it would care. If you think about it, it covers stuff that has been done illegally for decades now. why would they suddenly start obeying the laws when they have been constantly ignoring them?
people have been conditioned to accept whatever the state tells them to do.
9/11 really was a boon to the autocratic authority types. Gave them all the fear they needed to force through previously unpopular and unconstitutional methods for controlling that which they did not like but could not act on.
This case for example the judge takes the prosecutions word without investigating if they are lying about anything because he probably believes the government is always right, because they only have the interests of the people at heart. he has been conditioned to think like this.
