In a push to prevent crime, the EU is beginning to implement various invasive techniques that monitor the public physically and virtually.
The name of the project is Project Indect, and its aim is to
develop computer programmes which act as ‘agents’ to monitor and process information from web sites, discussion forums, file servers, peer-to-peer networks and even individual computers.
The EU has increased its budget for fighting crime, terrorism and handling migration by 13.5% over the last 6 years. Through profiling populations of entire nations, the new collective European police force is
likely to gain access to sensitive information held by UK police, including the British DNA database. It also expects the number of UK citizens extradited under the controversial European Arrest Warrant to triple.
The ‘1984′ style overhaul will even analyze and monitor personal computers and networks. Critics all around the world are calling this the beginning of a ‘European CIA.’
