“AI driven society is one without emotional intelligence.
AI lacks of humanity and ability to feel or think compassionately.
AI shares only one common element with humans, it’s ERROR prone, the difference is, AI lacks capability to correct its own errors.
This is not the world we want to live in or leave it to future generations.
Resist AI and all mass-surveillance, protect human right to privacy.”

EU CSA legislation execution, if adopted, leaves large part of decision making to AI. AI is an error prone system that lacks empathy and human intelligence to be able to make a difference between child pornography or an image sent by parents to grandparents, e.g. child playing at the beach wearing nothing or a swimming suit. Already now, people are getting locked out from their Microsoft accounts without any reason, the risks and stakes are too high for innocent people losing access to their accounts and as a direct consequence possibility to perform their work. EU Commission says CSA is to protect children from harm in internet but factually, this unproportionate mass-surveillance measure that harms children more than protects them. More effective measures would be, including online safety lectures to school curriculum and dedicate more funds to those investigating child sexual abuse crimes. Placing AI powered spyware, EU wide to all internet connections is a dangerous idea.


Lessons learned from France, regarding Macron’s pension reform few weeks ago in March, and in EU level, 2 years ago in April 2021, with TERREG legislation, in both instances the decision makers ignored the representatives of the people and passed the laws without Parliamentary vote.

Speaking of representation in general. European Parliament has 705 seats and in average one European Parliamentarians’ voice represents 633 759 thousand people (using direct divide). Representatives are in work, but it doesn’t mean they don’t hold into their own opinions, or forget their own best interests. It’s in human nature to think about these things, before expressing one’s opinion publicly. It’s hard to vote against the political party stance, one belongs to in issues, and even harder, when it involves ones job and career. Moving this to context of decision making power. Should the European citizens let the Governments access their private conversations among each others, or invite them to read intimate messages between couples, it is pretty sure, none of us would vote “Yes”. The question is, is it even democratic for any representative have the power over yourself to decide in matters as these? Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) state:
Article 12, No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”

To safeguard democracy and respect to human rights, decisions of this magnitude should be taken directly by the citizens through EU wide referendums, not political representatives that are having conflict of interests between their mandate to public and their superiors or self.

For CSA legislation and any future legislation that affect peoples human rights directly, as specified in UDHR, a Europe wide referendum must be held.

Today the EU and the Governments officials have taken a liberty of speaking on citizens behalf, in fact they don’t represent us or even bother to listen us anymore. To safe guard the future of Europe and Democracy it is time to swift the balance of power in Europe. People over Governments and Governments under Civil Society and people power.

In France people are already doing a good job in exercising their human right to assembly, CSA legislation is a Europe wide over breech of power, and needs to be addressed promptly.

If you haven’t already heard about this subject, it’s time to educate yourself quickly.
