No no. It means that the authorities (or anyone else for that
matter) can't go around asking people e.g. what political
party they're voting for or what they really think about our
prime minister. And then collect these results and put them
in huge databases for future use.
So it's rather the opposite of what you interpreted in into.
People should feel free to think whatever they like and not
fearing that someone would come after them for their beliefs.
That's what it's about. Don't you have this law in the US?
I think BPJ and Andreas who seem to be more politically aware
than me might explain this better do they feel the need.
