What a real Police state looked like

Computers piece together millions of shredded Stasi documents (Boing Boing) via Michael Froomkin.

I will blog this later but the key point to bear in mind is that even with the resources of the entire state behind them the Stasi were unable to intimidate the country. Why are people so affraid of the Bushies and Bin Laden?
