National surveillance

As I already explained, every government has an interest in keeping the own population under surveillance. It is well-known that countries like Iraq or China suppress and control their citizens. But the democratic European and American countries also keep their citizens under surveillance. The difference is the extent to which this is done.

Because I want to focus on global surveillance I only give a brief example of the current European attempt to increase the surveillance on Europeans.
