  1. They will eventually become the thought police.
    In the name of cyber crime, they would start monitoring people.
    Our freedom will erode and they need Majlis approval to monitor private communications. I think this is illegal.

  2. What s legal in this regime, when the regime itself has come through illegal means and justifying its continuation by deceit ?
