Today, the German government decided to enact laws to expand the use of genetic fingerprints by the police. When the law is passed, the police will be enabled to use DNS fingerprints without judicial permission and also for lesser crimes (like "propaganda crimes", maybe?).
One of the promoters of the law is Brigitte Zypries, who for some reason nobody seems to know is Germany's minister of justice.
This person has a history: This year she proposed a law that would have criminalized the "denial" of any
genocide that international courts think to have happened. She failed for this time, but the rules for what is to count as incitement under the infamous §130 of German penal law have been made stricter. Now "making the NS-regime look harmless" can be punished with prison. (This is a typical Gummiparagraph
["rubber paragraph"] which allows arbitrary decisions against political enemies because nobody really knows where making look harmless begins or ends; ironically, "rubber paragraphs" are supposedly characteristic of Nazi-law.)
Revisionism is on the rise in the internet. The future will show if Germany and the EU will respond by turning into an (even more) Orwellian police state. In Germany, demands have been put forth to ban certain foreign web sites (guess which), and it may very well come to this.
I'll be somewhere else by that time.
