Frankly this is very interesting,yes....
you are spot on..pretty scary though,I do think its a massive ""economic 
spying scam"
"and democracy is maybe after all an illusion..?
I believe in a form of community society..not a consumer society
that is bringing us towards chaos and ..
That is allso why i use Sylpheed
it resembles to what i conceive of ""society"
its non agressive & well we are exchanging ideas and opinions
so thats more than just a ""thingy"i paid lots for and am
proud of...blablabla..
looks like most of them new of it(European Gov's even coll
aborating...)...maybe they all think they are controlling each other!!
