State Surveillance, Counter-Terror Powers & Global Securitisation Strategies

“Such extreme powers are not needed to protect the public. Rather, they are used to intimidate, disorganise and stigmatise opposition to state agendas for global domination and permanent war.  Through a securitisation process, potentially all societal conflicts are portrayed as threats of disorder or of enemies.  Threats – terrorism, extremism and suspicious behaviour – are defined so broadly as to target potentially anyone.  Supposedly to protect us from such threats, ‘security measures’ are becoming all-pervasive, turning us all into suspects.”
