Inspired by the book Stasiland, this work is an attempt to see if some of the state practices that flourished in Communist Eastern Europe might be replicated in modern Ireland. It goes into the question of intelligence agencies, what agencies are active in Ireland, how they harass dissidents, their use of modern technology and their role in secretly supporting paramilitary groups in Ireland and around the world. It includes a lot of first hand testimony of state harassment, and even torture, which is on a par with what happened in countries like East Germany. Finally it concludes with some searching questions about the real government policies being pursued in Ireland.This might also be combined with psychologically modeling and profiling that the UK and US agencies are so fond of. ... Unusual patterns of interest would be easy to discover from that. ... that can be done using a mobile phone which is about the only product that has been heavily subsidised for sale in Ireland and the UK.
