Targets, hitmen and helpers
If you somehow manifest yourself as a succesfull, influential employee, director or owner of a large company, a critical investigator of some large projects, a leader or a potential leader of a movement, or as a potential threat to the Status Quo, intelligence agencies want to know how they can control you. Secret agents are everywhere. They participate in political parties where they pose as loyal members, willing to work hard, and inspire people as if they invented the party themselves. They may be the most fanatic in protest groups or protest demonstrations, leading the way, showing the less fanatic ones how the job is done. They may collect wellfare, work as a 'volunteer' (Short video of such a case)
but make some money at the side, payed by a secret service.
They may pose as loyal employees in a firm, just doing their job, while doing their secret work at the side. Secret agents may do it for the money, the exitement, or because they simply believe in the good cause. The agency will pat them on their shoulders and tell them what a great job they're doing.
Gathering information
What all secret agents are after, is information. What is done, when is it done, how is it done, why is it done, why is it not done, with whom is it done. Who does it, who knows that it is done,  who knows who it does, who does not know it. How can it be encouraged, how can it be stopped, how can it be altered, and how can something or someone else be blamed for what the hitman will do with it.

Secret agents may cause an organisation, regarded as 'dangerous', to be uncovered. They may cause a person or an organisation, regarded by another organisation, firm or party, as 'unwanted', to become currupted, blackmailed or ruined, in order to get rid of the threat it poses. Secret agents may cause a person
or an organisation, to be eliminated, by themselves or a hired hitman. The gathering of 'intelligence' is also needed for the cover up.
Cover up
In order to get the dirty job done and get away with it, it needs to be covered up and leave no trail. To carry out an elemination is one thing, but in the cover up it shows who's the professional, or who has the most influencial friends. If noone understands who did it, it can be repeated.

Politicians, directors, writers
anybody who thinks he or she has 'nothing to hide because they're doing nothing wrong', may be regarded simply naive. As politicians they may be the influencial ones, who succesfully promote or implement laws that make it impossible for the more careful ones to keep their private life for themselves. As dedicated business people they may work out the hardware, the software and the infrastructure for others to spy on them
. As writers they may seek pleasure in ridiculing those who believe Orwell's '1984' is to be taken serious.

Ordinairy police officers, protecting who?
The below video shows a sickening development in our 'civilized world. It looks like the 'Braunhemden' are back, but now in Kingsnorth, Kent, UK. Harassment of peaceful demonstrators, journalists, aggressive interrogation of local residents, confiscation of items such as childrens' costumes and crayons, attempted dawn raids on the camp, use of batons and CS gas, and the forced search of 1000s of people and the adding of their personal data to a secret database.
Very, very strange. Who brainwashed these police officers? Who told them they have the right  to attack peacefull people instead of defending them against violence? What makes them obey such orders and not feel sick? Do they need the feel of power, after boring traffic ticketing?
Great video of an awful development.
