Web inventor rails against net spying

THE scientist credited with inventing the World Wide Web says a growing tide of surveillance is threatening democracy's future. 
Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Director of the World Wide Web Consortium. 

Tim Berners-Lee, who developed the web in 1990, has been a vocal critic of internet surveillance.

He said on Friday that as more people use the internet and social media to "expose wrongdoing," some governments were feeling threatened.

He said the result was a "growing tide of surveillance and censorship" that threatens the future of democracy, warning that "bold steps" must be taken to protect privacy rights and the freedom of opinion online.

His remarks came ahead of the launch in London of a report ranking which countries best use the web.

Sweden was ranked first, followed by Norway, the UK and the United States.

The agenda is much more powerful than what any man or even lobby can ever do to halt this spying.

It is happening and will be happening with no cease date EVER.

Any consitutional law or ammendent, or Human Rights or freedom of expression law that is broken is scoffed at by the 'authories' as they can never be brought to trail before ANY court, as the courts are subservient to the 'corporatocracy'.
