Legal "Britain's spy agency GCHQ has secretly gained access to the network of cables which carry the world's phone calls and internet traffic and has started to process vast streams of sensitive personal information which it is sharing with its American partner, the National Security Agency. The sheer scale of the agency's ambition is reflected in the titles of its two principal components: Mastering the Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation, aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible. This is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate." Woah.

South Korea has been spying on its citizens since the previous pro-American president. It doesn't look good because South Korea's spy chief was just indicted a while ago because of an organized manipulation of online opinions during a presidential election season. I always said this before. South Korea will always be worse than China when it comes to online surveillance and manipulation.
