There was an article in a UK newspaper a couple of years back highlighting the indicators of totalitarian regimes (using Hitler and Stalinism as references), and suggested that both the UK and the US were sliding rapidly that way.

One big indicator was the collection of knowledge, building files on anyone who was a threat, to anyone who might be a threat, to just anyone.

A fair and just society does not need to spy on its own population.
