Mass Surveillance

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]

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.
