Repeal 'Digital Network Defense'
The repeal notes this in its text, recognising that the target resolution permits member nations under very broad terms to 'monitor their citizens’ digital footprint and allowing them to easily justify such an invasion of privacy by saying it was to monitor digital security threats' and that the clause blocks 'future legislation from restricting their ability to do so'.
The World Assembly should be able to prevent member nations from imposing a technological authoritarian police state or, even more broadly, prevent mass surveillance from fuelling substantial state control over private activities in general and critics of the government in particular. A replacement is intended.
The Office therefore recommends a vote in favour of repealing 'Digital Network Defence'.
Why was I tagged?!
Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams – which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes – and oft-ignored RMB messages.
