I think he meant 'registering' peoples opinions, like, making huge databases from where you can check on your employees so you don't have any communists, socialists, etc. employed. A way to avoid McCarthyistic trends, but this law hasn't stopped SÄPO ('SÄkerhetsPOlisen', the police of safety) from doing precisely that. (Disclaimer: my knowledge about this is limited to Swedish media in Finland, so I might be wrong)
