I haven't seen this in mainstream media.

A journalist who reported on leaked information regarding private intelligence firm (with information very much in the interest of public scrutiny) gets arrested and sentenced to 5 years - setting a dangerous precedence.

Insight into the way governments blacken whistle-blowers and their supporters (Glen Greenwald) via misinformation in controlled media.

When talking about privacy, the rebuff that often shows it's head is:
"if you do no wrong you have nothing to hide" etc.

Glenn Greenwald buries this argument with such reason and eloquence.

IMO this is a must watch

The very controversial Investment chapter of the TPP was published by Wikileaks today. Not only was it classified but it was supposed to remain a secret for four years after the agreement took effect! Talk about secret law. What hubris. The chapter gives corporations the power to sue governments for their expected profits if they pass a law in the public interest.

lel - Australian Mass Surveilance is LEGALISED. Freedom?
The U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that a NSA mass surveillance program collecting phone records in bulk is illegal. The ruling does not address the program's constitutionality, but deems it illegal as unauthorized under Section 215 of the Patriot Act. The government and FISA court had advanced a previously secret interpretation of Section 215 to engage in mass collection of the American people's phone records.
What Congress needs to do is pass an affirmative rejection of all mass surveillance programs, overturning Section 215 of the Patriot Act, Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, and Executive Order 12333, while making clear that no secret legal interpretations may be used to justify these programs' continuation. It is not as complicated as it is made out to be. Section 215 should be allowed to simply expire, rather than trying to reform it.

The chief executive of Symantec, maker of the Norton internet security software, says "trade-offs" may need to be made when it comes to encrypting peoples' private communications and balancing that with providing law-enforcement the ability to fight and prevent terrorism and crime.
How convenient. So now it's encryption. Must have come up as a topic of interest at the last Bilderberg

The war on terror (privacy/human rights/bill of rights(US)/humanity) knows no bounds.
