    At a guess six weeks is when they were listed to stand in these elections, which were their first ones?

    As annoying as the European approach to the internet and privacy often is, this is one occasion where the GDPR has most definitely worked as intended:

    citoyens, vouliez-vous une révolution sans révolution?

    those nights were on fire
    we couldn't get higher
    we didn't know that we had it all
    but no one warns you before the fall

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    Haha, worth noting that this would have been completely unlawful in the pre-GDPR days as well.

    "Under GDPR, personal data (and especially sensitive biometric data) needs to be collected for specific and legitimate purposes. Scraping data to figure out if someone once appeared in porn is not that."

    This excerpt from the article possibly misrepresents the position though. Sounds like a specific purpose to me, and it could plausibly also be legitimate in some contexts. The legal issue here is that what went on here lacked any adequate legal basis (i.e. it could not be justified by way of reference to any of the legitimising grounds for the processing of personal data outlined in the GDPR).

    It's not enough for you to have a specific and legitimate purpose in mind.

    modern discourse: a bunch of angry kids is the precursor to totalitarianism. oh, and every now and then, people who are politically active and committed to social liberalism (or indeed, just happent to be in the way of those who are opposed to such) just get murdered and this ~just happens~.

    Not clear if there was even a political motive tbf. The lack of some loony crowing about it would be unusual in such a scenario.

    It's a real pattern now though, that no one seems to care about at all. Not just Germany, but the mayor in Poland, the journalist in Brazil, and others in the last few months alone.

    Far-right taking a hit and the Greens making big gains in the Austrian snap elections. I could be wrong but this seems to be a bit of a trend this year.

    Hungary just passed what can only be described as an Enabling Act.

    We've seen some pretty grim power grabbing stuff over the past month, including the disgusting UK Coronavirus bill, but this is beyond the pale.

    Tensions between EU states Italy, Spain and Portugal and the so called "Frugal Four", Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden over the EU response to Covid-19 seem to be causing great concern in the corridors of power in Brussels. I could never understand why they are not called the "Frugal Five". Surely, when it comes to economics and finance, Germany are naturally allied with these four.

    It must be bad if even the BBC are reporting the EU facing possibly existential problems.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-52135816

    I wonder if Ms. Adler had permission to express a degree of pessimism re the future of the EU in her article.
