Ok, I am here. Alive. Feeling like a stranger in a strange dream. No, not at all. Reading about new laws that will make it even harder to maintain some kind of personal integrity in this global world. I see news about the new laws that will enable governments to spy on their own citizens, listen to the phone conversations, monitor internet activity, read emails and what files are being sent and received. The latest is a law to allow Customs to check the content of mp3-players and personal computers, to enable search for illegal copies of copyrighted material.  All of these laws make the scenario of George Orwell‘s novel 1984 less and less fictional.
