Trump's vaunted tax cuts are another gift to the hyperrich

In 2018, the antics of President Trump dominated commercially-controlled media coverage, "sucking the oxygen" from discussion about more weighty topics such as the rollout of universal surveillance and a police state under the guise of the "war on terror".[1]

UK Deep state exposure

The section of the IPA that admits that MI5 operatives can carry out crimes in the UK, as published on March 1st, 2018 by the Investigatory Powers Commissioner's Office after losing a 7 month legal battle

The UK government lost a seven-month legal battle and were forced to admit that MI5 operatives were allowed to participate in crimes. After being legally required to publish the document,[2] they posted a barely legible copy online on 1st March.

Universal surveillance

Australia lead the way amongst Western "democracies" in rolling back civil liberties about privacy. In December it passed laws which claim the right to compel both "local and international providers -- including overseas communication giants such as Facebook and WhatsApp -- to remove electronic protections, conceal covert operations by government agencies, and help with access to devices or services."[3]

Internet Censorship

Full article: Internet censorship

If the 2017 moves towards internet censorship continue, 2018 will be a year of expanded internet censorship and continued mass surveillance, amid talk of "fake news", "hate speech", "hate groups" and the online "radicalisation" of vulnerable people through exposure "extremist" material (including "non-violent extremism", which is likely to be included in legislation passed to try to stifle free speech). YouTube has been increasingly aggressive in closing down channels which breach its guidelines, closing down channels with hundreds of videos at a stroke.[4]
