«Les Pays-Bas bâtissent un Etat de surveillance pour les pauvres» - Le Temps

#politique #surveillance #exploitation #1984

Le projet date de plusieurs années, mais il provoque maintenant un débat national aux Pays-Bas. En cause: un système de surveillance qui, selon ses opposants, mine les fondements de la liberté démocratique. Sur les plus pauvres, l’ombre de Big Brother *


I just noticed the @fsfe's tag line and really love it: "empowering users to control technology"


If the Dutch system is so special, good and precious as those politicians in The Hague have kept repeating over the decades, then why has not one single other country adopted it?

- FSFE's oktober is verschenen:


De belangrijkste verhalen van deze maand zijn onze eerste "Software Freedom " met Cory Doctorow en ons jaarverslag "Softwarevrijheid in Europa 2019"

Lees ook over de Zwitserse campagne en alle andere dingen die onze de afgelopen maand heeft gedaan.

State of the Netherlands: the system. Parent asks primary school director what data Google collects from her son, got the answer to back off and give her a break. It’s a Google school, where teacher Shirley van de V. ensures no child leaves school without having to have learned youtube, gmail and gdrive.

Amazed that a column proposing public technical infrastructure for the data of all citizens got published in the Dutch - ("Roxanne van Iperen: "Digitaal gemak: opium voor het volk", Vrij Nederland, nov. 2019, p. 10)

Because of the start of the wintertime I wanted to check the time in the Netherlands. So I started the radio stream [1] of public radio station 1 with the continuous loop of the latest news broadcast, which mentions the hour on which it was broadcasted first. Instead of that I got the message to look for the app (proprietary phones only) or search some Google service.
