No, government surveillance of general citizen communication is outrageous. However, if it is court ordered it should be allowed.

@92SPHG9 answered…7mos

Only when suspicious of terrorism or criminal activity and the invasion of privacy is for the greater good. Monitoring of the average citizen is inappropriate.

@92RDLCB answered…7mos

Yes, for previous reasons, however, the monitoring should be conducted with well trained and precise AI relevant for 1) Suicide Prevention and anti-bullying 2) Counter Terrorism 3) Corruption

@92GK5YQ answered…7mos

@8Y7BS49 answered…11mos

Yes, but only by court order if the court is held accountable by penalty for a misjudgement if the order application is proved fraudulent as has happened in the US with the corrupted FISA court.
