“Against individualism, the Fascist conception is for the State; and it is for the individual in so far as he coincides with the State . . . . It is opposed to classical Liberalism . . . . Liberalism denied the State in the interests of the particular individual; Fascism reaffirms the State as the true reality of the individual.”

“allows for male Saudis “to specify when and how women can cross Saudi borders, and to get close to real-time SMS updates when they travel.” Absher can be used to restrict which destinations Saudi women can travel to, as well as prevent them from traveling anywhere outside the country at all, and the SMS notification system is used to alert the men if the women try to leave on their own.”

But the decision underscores a broader trend in these cases: courts across the country, faced with unfamiliar technology and unsympathetic defendants, are issuing decisions that threaten everyone’s rights.

 

People like this judge should be removed and sent into retirement immediately. They are not competent to decide such matters.

You wonder why I hate those fucking phones that everyone taps on 23 hours a day.

A brief filed by the American Civil Liberties Union noted that the location tracking in this case reveals the “extraordinary private details” police can obtain via location tracking, including where the defendants may worship and who they may be sleeping with.

The appellate panel disagreed in the ruling, saying the pair had “no expectation of privacy” for location information. The judges added the records are unprotected, as they “say nothing about the content of any calls”.

 

No expectation of privacy for the phone that tracks your every movement constantly, pinpointing you everywhere you go. Do you people understand any of the implications of that?
