Slavery is Freedom

US border people are searching laptops and cell phones of travellers in airports. Not "turn it on so we can tell it's not made out of plastique" but "hand it over so we can see what websites you've visited, or who your contacts are."

I have an old friend whose family escaped from the Iron Curtain when she was young; she said her father was quite Republican for their anti-Communist history, and commented herself on the public disdain for "papers, please!" in movies yet it being difficult to travel in the US without some now. And that was back in 2000. I wonder what she or her father think now.

That is deeply disturbing.
