I think you are being obtuse on purpose. Do you really think any of those things would happen? In real life?
The wording is very general and could be interpreted in many ways. Point is, as long as there’s a fear of these things happening, they have to be explained in order to sell this.
I'm just curious, do you know any occasions where government has been granted a new power or area of purview, where it didn't quickly exploit that power to the most massive level of intrusiveness possible?
