Aussie Government passing laws to Monitor the Web

Australian spies will soon have the power to monitor the entire Australian internet with just one warrant, and journalists and whistleblowers will face up to 10 years' jail for disclosing classified information.

This and other new powers are being enacted in the name of beefing up our spy agencies and police security due to the threat of terrorist attacks.
The powers are very broad, intrusive and provide for little or no ministerial controls.
I dk what its like in your countries but here there is a strong undercurrent of fear and i think some are really making a red scare to get these laws through.

Personally, while there may be some risk of hardened terrorist operatives coming here and setting up some sort of enclave, i think the real threat is the "radicalisation" of young Australian men who may feel alienated from mainstream society due to their ethnicity or heritage and/or being out of work or in low paid jobs.
I for one am pretty concerned about where this is all going.
