Governments must not constrain behaviour or design to make surveillance easier Closed Thu 10 Apr 2014 11:07AM
We have unanimous consensus that Pirate policy on Privacy include the principle that governments must not constrain behaviour or design to make surveillance easier.
Despite our ongoing debate, Adam and I appear to have found consensus, and I want to check if this is a broadly shared principle which could be part of our position statement on Surveillance. Do we agree that governments must not constrain people's behaviour, or the design of communication systems, to make surveillance easier, cheaper, or more far-reaching?

The Government must never again restrict communications systems or people's behaviour. If that is an irritant to a bureaucrat somewhere, then too bad for that bureaucrat.
