The post-Internet age has seen a clash between the Privacy of Individual against the Orwellian predilections of the State. With an increased concern of unfettered surveillance and invasion into the private lives of individuals, there has been a strong call to insulate one's online private affairs against such encroachment. While many jurisdictions across the world have declared one's privacy as their fundamental rights and have legislations (such as GDPR) in place, the increasing fascination of the Governments across the globe to peep into and control the private life of its citizens seems to be the latest fetish. With the privacy-surveillance issue gathering significant momentum and engulfing the world as a major global issue (just behind Climate change), a problematic trend is seen to evolve across jurisdictions, where states are making legislative efforts to invade the private lives of their citizens. In this light, The Australia Parliament, has unfortunately, sunken to a new low when it rushed the draconian Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2020 through both the Houses, and passed the law within less than 24 hours on 25 August, 2021.
