Alas soon again.  The new surveillance laws are pretty close to what
they did in the GDR.  That is why some people here are talking about
Stasi-2.0 [1].  Our hope is in the Federal Constitutional Court which is
busily correcting these new laws of our parliament.



[1] Stasi = "Ministerium fuer Staatssicherheit" in the former GDR, their 
            surveilance and citizen control agenecy.

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
