Canadian Border Patrol Charge Traveler With 'Obstruction' For Refusing To Give Up His Phone Password

In the US, there have been a number of cases concerning searches of computers and electronic devices at the border, with an unfortunately large number saying that you really don't have privacy rights at the border. Of course, it's not universal, as at least one important court has ruled otherwise. Up in Canada, however, there apparently hasn't been much caselaw on this issue, so assuming Philippon fights this, it could make for a very interesting case.

Financial collapse leads to war

Any rationale for war will do, be it terrorists foreign and domestic, Big Bad Russia, or hallucinated space aliens. Military success is unimportant, because failure is even better than success for maintaining order because it makes it possible to force through various emergency security measures. Various training runs, such as the military occupation of Boston following the staged bombings at the Boston Marathon, have already taken place. The surveillance infrastructure and the partially privatized prison-industrial complex are already in place for locking up the undesirables. A really huge failure would provide the best rationale for putting the economy on a war footing, imposing martial law, suppressing dissent, outlawing “extremist” political activity and so on.
