I’ve been on vacation for two weeks now with little access to any media. Unfortunately the news are still full of new aspects of the surveillance system made by the NSA and other intelligence services. It is getting more and more obvious, how countries and companies work together. Statements from politicians, especially German ones, are just awkward.

We have elections in Germany in about one and a half weeks. I fear that all the news about the surveillance system don’t have any effect on the elections. So many people are affected, but there is probably no consequence. This whole story shows very well, what politicians think, how inconsiderately they can treat the public.

There was a demonstration in Berlin at least. About 15.000 to 20.000 people were on the streets so show that they don’t want a system of surveillance.
