Well that's reassuring

It's good to know that the next Hitler will have no shortage of toys with which to impose his will on the people he has authority over.

It is frightening to see just how quickly the totalitarian mindset is adopted. Even if the situation may call for this, I am dismayed that so many people in so many countries are taking up the challenge of giving their leaders more surveillance powers without any guarantee that those powers will be rescinded when the crisis is over.
