Full article: Mass surveillance/Technology
A 2017 UK report highlighting the purported "terror threat" and suggesting that electronic ankle tags be applied to those whom the authorities deem to constitute a "general threat". Red underlining in the original.[2]

Since 2001, the strategy of tension has assumed prominence as a means of inculcating fear in an effort to push forward public acceptance of mass surveillance. While the threat of "terrorism" remains extremely small, as compared to other everyday threats such as traffic accidents,[3] public fear of it are being stoked, most obviously by false flag attacks, but also by nurturing of enemy images such as that of the "radicalised" of "extremist" Muslims.
