Comrade Adomanis knows what country are looking for real! Recognizable columnist Mark Adomanis in the journal "Forbes" (Source of translation — "Inosmi") Criticized Article by Anna Nemcova, placed in «The Daily Beast» and dedicated "Putin's Russia" and "ears" that are out there in the Russian Federation itself, have office wall.
Adomanis quoted Nemtsov:
"But at the moment, many Russians from the middle class as ever afraid that the walls have ears. Changed only the alleged organizers of the surveillance. As indicated by the study of the capital nedavneshnee Recruitment HeadHunter, more than half of Russians with wages more than 6,600 dollars a month — in other words with a solid middle-class income, fear that employers read their electric-mail, chat, Google, Facebook messages and personal notes in Twitter. The richer and more on the Status of an employee, according to the agency, the more often he (or she) thinks that his (or her) superiors engaged in spying.
Of the more than 7,000 respondents 12% believe that their employer was reading personal blogs, in what could be bad comments about the management. Nearly 50% report that they reprimanded for seeking the best performance in the web during working hours. More than 60% of those who believe that they are being watched, they say that they were called "on the carpet" for a nasty conversation, while 8% admit that they were fired as a result of not conforming, on the views of employers, the behavior of the computer …
Hard to say how often Russian employers spy on their employees. Almost all memory such surveillance may be the result of a longish and tortured history with the KGB. "
Adomanis believes that Nemtsov understand anything bad in the economy. The median wage in the U.S. in 2010 was about 26,500 dollars, and our homeland, in his view, poorer America, and wage it below. Hence the 6600 bucks for a month — wages are not the middle class. Adomanis recommends Nemcova define a similar class in the non-economic categories (for example, "creative" or "anti-Putin class").
Also surprised by the one-sidedness of Article columnist Nemcova.
If she writes of, why not mention — for the sake of comparison — the democratic Western countries, where incidentally, "employers often spy on their employees, and to do this they practically nothing legally prevents. It looks like she does not know — says Adomanis — that the conduct in which she writes, is found in the United States, everywhere and often completely covered by the media. In fact, the event that Russian employers are paying more attention to the surveillance of their payroll slaves, says not so much that the backward Our homeland is mired in the Russian past, but about the fact that she is stronger resembles the Western countries. "
Comrade Adomanis cited several "egregious examples of employers' surveillance in the country, the history of which had neither Lenin nor the KGB, nor of this nasty, nasty Vladimir Putin."
In the U.S., private detectives hired to spy on employees, misused sick leave, almost two-thirds of companies that track down what web sites are visited by their employees, more than half (52%) of organizations looking electric Mail employees and approximately every fifth company is looking for instantaneous messaging own employees; rising in the U.S. market software designed "to control security and data collection", according to the American Management Association, 45% of U.S. employers to not only track down previewed in the web content, and pressing buttons (!) also the time that employees spend at the keyboard, and in America there is even control surveillance of employees. Also M. Adomanis cites an article by the American Bar Association, in which reaffirmed that "control of the web and the introduction of employees of electric-mail address — this is the right tool to help avoid lawsuits." In the end, it gives a link to the article attorney from the State Labor Relations Board, and in this article clearly states: "Personal introduction of an employee of an electric-mail address of the employer or web access is not protected by law."
Position and Russian, and American workers, said Adomanis, characterized by the fact that those other there is virtually no rights to "privacy" when it comes to the use of the Web in the workp
lace. "This is a fundamentally — writes columnist — and this must be read, but obviously not in the style of," Look at those stupid, retarded Russian! Their employers use spyware programs from! "
One million three hundred thousand. On the resource «End the Lie» Madison Ruppert published an article "U.S. mobile phone company only in 2011, responded to 1,300,000 requests for disk imaging of subscribers."
According to the latest data on mobile companies from Congressman Ed Markey (Mass.), the company responded to the huge number — 1,300,000 — requests received from law enforcement authorities with respect to disk imaging on subscribers.
Documentation, purchased from companies «AT & T», «C Spire», «Leap and Cricket», «MetroPCS», «Sprint», «T-Mobile», «TracFone», «US Cellular» and «Verizon», the first steel time available to the public and justified, as is widely spread practice of monitoring citizens.
More concerned about the creator of articles that one request can lead to outright Weave the people who will be caught in a "network of government." Law enforcement agencies can gain access to all the phone numbers that are connected to a certain cell in a certain period of time. This was told David Kravets. And he explained: "For example, if the police find lust man who broke the window under protest" Occupy ", it can get a phone number and identifying data of all the protesters with mobile phones in the area at that time — and to use the data for other purposes" .
For many years, reports Ruppert, cellular companies in the U.S. flatly refuses to provide the public with information about the frequency of requests of law enforcement.
Curiously enough there and then, says the journalist that similar information of the company passed the police did not gratuitous. For example, in 2007 «AT & T» has received 2.8 million dollars for the work it performed with respect to almost 125,000 requests. In 2011, this amount increased to $ 8.25 million: processed over 260,000 requests.
"Fun" and the fact that «AT & T», which must be respected "human rights", in other words from time to time to issue reports on the work of similar requests from law enforcement, did not publish any of these reports — until such time as the company "did not give a kick Congress. "
The company «Verizon» received in 2011 about 260,000 requests (a yearly increase of about 15%).
Most of all requests received operator «Sprint» (third largest in the U.S.). The company said it handled about 500,000 requests.
Law enforcement agencies, writes companion Ruppert, have the right to get information from companies in different ways. They can request the information, claiming that there was a concrete threat of injury or death of an incident, also referring to subpoenas and court orders.
Using mobile phones, Americans are not protected by the Fourth Amendment. Exclusively in one «AT & T» more than 100 employees working in 24/7 mode to query law enforcement.
The creator of the article thinks that the requests are often very much and that the South American society is yet another example of how the United States is rapidly immersed in the horror of Orwell.
So Makarov as a freedom-loving America worries about KGB-dominated office-suppression in Russia, its own democracy that with a jeweler's precision described in 1948 by George Orwell (who had in mind was not Russian Alliance), tighten the screws tighter.
