Re: An Appraisal of the Technologies of Political Control

Theodor Schlickmann offered:


This is a shortened version of an ATPC update over twice as long.

The full report was offered for a while by the Dutch newspaper
NRC Handelsblad but has since been replaced by the shorter
version. Why only the short version is being offered is not 
clear -- it addresses only the surveillance part of the full
report, ECHELON and the FBI/EU wiretapping deal.

Commission and there may have  been a political decision
to focus on its most contentious aspects. 

Other sections update the full range of technologies for political 
control of the original report published in January 1998. (Note 
that EuroParl has still not made the orginal report available

The NRC Handelsblad reporter who got the full report from the 
author, the Omega Foundation, sent us a copy available at:
