But the mesh is not free from glitches. Sometimes its power overwhelms the ones who believe they actually have control over it. Like the French government, directly confronted by the Yellow Vest Movement, the latest proletarian revolution that is using social media as a tool for decentralized efficient organisation.
The brass mesh at Embassy House is not only a metallic layer that was used to conceal and protect sensitive information. It is also part of the security structures of this society. Its reason of existence was, or so we believe, to protect the freedom and security of the Swedish citizens.
The mesh is everybody, it’s everywhere and it affects everything. Whether it protects us or imprisons us can be a matter of opinion, but mostly it is a matter of choice.
