You are all potential terrorists. It matters not that you live in Britain, the United States, Australia or the Middle East. Citizenship is effectively abolished. Turn on your computer and the US Department of Homeland Security's National Operations Center may monitor whether you are typing not merely "al-Qaeda", but "exercise", "drill", "wave", "initiative" and "organisation": all proscribed words. The British government's announcement that it intends to spy on every email and phone call is old hat. The satellite vacuum cleaner known as Echelon has been doing this for years. What has changed is that a state of permanent war has been launched by the United States and a police state is consuming western democracy.

There's one factor still in our favor: think about how hard it is for common sense to reach the top of a large company. There are things that are blindingly obvious to any customer or employee, but no one seems to act on them. The same will be true of these spies - whatever the hoard of information they collect, they will still find themselves unable to interpret and act on it much of the time. Nonetheless, we should pay attention to the advance of artificial intelligence, lest we find ourselves moving slowly in the direction of a grimmer scenario (perhaps more reminiscent of Terminator than 1984).
