While I make a drug war reference here, there also seems to be a crossover between people who support mass surveillance... And people who are fond of the War on Drugs...


I probably don't really need to explain this bit.

Both of these things are things where someone suspends well-established rights and principles in the hopes of fighting something bad.

Also, these measures only ever keep escalating, and no one questions whether they're particularly proportionate. There is also a very single-minded mindset about it.

Could probably think of more.

Those are the parallels that I can see there.
