My mom just informed me that the Romanian government just passed an idiotic law, which is totally outrageous in my opinion and I think many people will agree with me on this one.
Law no. 298/2008 appeared today in the Official Gazette of Romania (if you want, just google for it and be amazed) and it is supposed to protect the well being of the Romanian citizens and their private lives by recording and retaining private phone conversations and online conversations. These pieces of information will be filed in the system for 6 months. However I don't see how the hell this whole procedure could possibly serve for my personal well being, I think that the only reason they are recording these conversations is to find out something they can use against me or any citizen for that matter. I see the whole thing as Orwell described it in his novel, 1984: He who controls the past, controls the future.
So as far as I'm concerned I think that this law is just another way to show off the authority of the legal system (which is still a big gibberish and it changes like fashion trends do every season) and to scare the sh*t out of people who have something to hide or who are afraid to do anything which might be against the law. Another quote by Orwell says that: Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. I rest my case.
So everyone who is reading this and is still in Romania, hide your stashes well, deep in your drawers, talk about the weather on the phone and on the messenger, go easy on those x-rated sites and be paranoid all the time because Big Brother is watching you!
