Zwei Jahre nach Rop Gonggrijp und Frank Riegers leicht demotivierenden „We lost the war“ – Vortrag auf dem Chaos Computer Club Congress stellt jetzt Rop in seinem Blog fest: Today, we are all Germans.
So the people of Germany seem to be successfully defending themselves against their government. What’s wrong with the rest of the world? There have been plenty efforts in many other countries to defend the notion of privacy, but the Germans have simply been provided with better and sharper tools for defending themselves. Their sharpest tool by far is this federal constitutional court. Without it, I fear Germany would have long been in the same sorry state as my own country. I hope all Germans realize that the judges and support staff that make up this court are the one single thing that stands between today’s Germany and a police state.
