There seems to be a huge chunk of the population in those countries that just seems fine to go along with it or accepts the good government knows best approach. IIRC both Australia and Britain have some kind of "mandatory data retention" laws on their ISP's and such and a very liberal policy when it comes to government monitoring of such.

That is most likely because they have been living with it for a long time already. Cameras everywhere watching the entire population of cities, all transactions being sent to government agencies to be shifted through an algorithm and possibly be flagged, taps on communication.

For all the craziness we Americans think we have from the government spying on us, it is nothing compared to what some of these other countries have been doing for years now.
