Silly Techius, that just means we need more of it! Clearly it will work if we just have enough mass surveillance!

Oh silly me! How could I be so irrational, of course we need more of it. We all know the solution to all problems is throwing more money(or surveillance in this matter) at the people, that'll make the problem go away for sure!

It does not mean it's not working there are a lot more factors to it. But then again I'm also not a mass surveillance fan.

Indeed, correlation doesn't mean causation.

Of course it works because not a single politician has been strung up for treason. That's the reason Mass surveillance exist so the elites know when it's time to properly shit themselves

The whole selling point of mass surveillance is that it's supposed to be a preventative measure. Before 911, law enforcement could already access communication records any time they wanted after a criminal event occurred. I mean, for fuck's sake, people playing Pokemon GO are more effective at earlier detection of crimes than law enforcement is. Mass surveillance doesn't work.

I said this before but, seems worth repeating.

Mass surveillance isn't about protecting the people, it's about protecting the people in power. Mass surveillance works it's goal just isn't what they say it is. If they stopped every attack on the "insignificant people" the ones doing the attacking would wise up and use more secure methods.

The purpose of mass surveillance is not to stop terrorism. Terrorism is good for business when you're a security state because it justifies your existence. If there was no terrorism, you would have no reason to exist and people would see you for the naked authoritarians you are. Mass surveillance is about control.
