When big TV stations or major magazines spread news, we are seduced to believe that these topics might have global importance. In most cases reality proves that news and headlines are treated differently depending on the local players. The internet helps to skip borders and consider other peoples´ opinions. A good to way to broaden our horizon.

Prism protests in the US

Between the lines one could read in recent German press on NSA, Prism & Co that only Europeans - and amongst them mainly Germans - would be interested in maintaining and defending rights of freedom against government induced security policy. Whereas Americans have already given up this fight for freedom.
We have selected one article of a leading medium, the New York Times, which refers to clearer and more fact oriented statements than most German articles around Prism.

It´s always worth to change your point of view.
And it has never been easier than today.

Asylum in Russia - a country which disregards human rights!!!!
Edward Snowden gets out of the frying pan into the fire.

Due to my personal opinion he won't be happy in his new "home country".

Who wants to stay in Russia by his own choice - except Gérard Depardieu ....

Snowden will surely look for another shelter. But in the meantime he has to cope with Putin.

It has never been so easy to keep people, to keep the whole nation under surveillance than now. The internet and mobile phones are appropriate tools to bring everybody under control.

Do you think you have nothing to hide? Even if you aren't a gangster or a terrorist you wouldn't like other people to know more about you than yourself. So please, be careful publishing your personel data and opinion. Everybody is suspicious!

Please don't forget: The freedom of our mind is our most important asset!

Yes, we get used to be observed everywhere we go: in the Supermarket, at work,and public places . You can be traced when you have a mobile phone. So what?

The institution who accumulates and evaluates these data gets allmighty!
