I won't pretend to know much about Australia's politics, but this definitely doesn't sound like a good thing. Good luck fighting it guys.

Maybe we could ask the runec AI, current stored between two crays in a server room in Switzerland. Be careful, though, as it has learned to feel human emotion.

Does this create vulnerabilities for other nation's data?


I guess that depends on whose data is on the devices that they hack



The Labor MP said the powers are not a form of mass surveillance.

Scrapped? By who? Nearly everyone who opposed it dropped all opposition--including the desire to have amendments added--to pass it as quickly as possible. In the reddit thread you linked to, several people mentioned contacting their representatives and getting blown off.

Also, my favorite part might be that it has gone from "only for serious crimes" to "only for serious crimes...and things with a minimum sentence of 3 or more years". Lovely.

Exactly. This deplorable bill set such a dangerous precedent in Australia. What's their exact criteria? Who has authority? Who looks over that authority? And, now, without even answering these questions, even disregarding the morality of it, it's been approved to be codified into law.

This only highlights the nation's ever-increasing role of authoritarianism in it's government.

By one of the other parties if they get in hopefully something has to be done anyhow.
It's a dangerous precedent and i want this shit to be scrapped but unless a party rises gets in control and does something i don't think it will happen :/

The greens are pissed and as much as i hate them......they are getting my preferential vote over labour and liberal parties now!

Even if there is another political party that opposes this, they won't be able to do anything. By the time there is another election, police will have caught at least a few scary criminals using these new powers, and anyone opposing this legislation will be painted as being on the side of criminals and against the safety of ordinary Australians. Hell, that's how they tried to make it seem in the first place when they were pushing for votes.

well next election is around the start of next year some time iirc so......here is to hoping but you are probably right
Knowing my country though i wouldn't be surprised if it did get repealed then put back in.

We seem to have a thing for doing something stupid undoing it then doing it again :/

Apple should simply stop selling the iPhone in Australia to teach them a lesson.
