As always, the analogy is flawed.
If the court ordered someone to break into your house and delete the attachment you saved locally, your analogy would hold. As it is, what GS is asking would be analogous to the court ordering the post office to remove the letter from your PO Box. Seems much more reasonable to me.

People are controlling your mind all the time. Every time you see an ad, someone is trying to control your mind to try to convince you buy something. Every time you read an article in a paper, someone controls your mind to try to get their point across. Every time you argue with someone she is trying to control your mind by getting her point across. Etc.

Get off your high horse, use your brain.

You don't seem to understand the problem. All occidental democracies (let's say western Europe and the USA but that's restrictive) have a web of laws that is sufficiently complex and dense that virtually anyone is breaking at least a dozen. In that sense, the government can get down to any citizen and imprison them for probably a long time. Fortunately, our rulers aren't that long-teethed just yet. But it's getting worse at every election. Every one. Year after year, you lose a little more fundamental rights. And you see nothing because the erosion of those rights is pretty small each year.

But if you say nothing, in 50 or 100 years, some crappy dictator will get there and you (or your descendants but it will be your fault) will not be able to fight anymore, because of all that crap you didn't fight for while you had the chance.

The definition of hacking, the legal one, in many places at least in europe is defined pretty much as the following: Being somewhere you're not supposed to, while knowing you're not supposed to, and then snooping around instead of just leaving. I guess it's the digital alternative of 'breaking and entering'. Just because you found a post-it with the lock of the front door on the ground, it doesn't make it right to go in. Common sense should kick in at some point, so if you do it anyways, justice assumes common sense did kick in and you entered willfully. THAT makes it illegal.

That's pretty much common sense.

...does City of London police have any jurisdiction outside City of London? Registrar should not have caved in.

I should like to point out that I, a registered voter and taxpayer, have never been asked whether I want my taxes spent on something so monumentally stupid as a Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit. And I suspect that its creation was an idea planted, bought, and paid for by You-Know-Who.
