Intelligence agencies collect information about other countries and people. In particular, secret service activities and the consequences of these activities are responsible for many unrest and insecurity worldwide: torture and kidnapping, mass surveillance, covert operations, etc.
Secret services are used to obtain information on the foreign, domestic and security policy situation for their own state. For this purpose, so-called intelligence means are used, such as voluntary or deception-related disclosures by information providers, increased technical surveillance of postal and telecommunications traffic, covert operations or coercive measures within the meaning of a secret police force. Similarly, some intelligence services (e. g. CIA) have paramilitary units for carrying out secret operations.
In the meantime, it is above all secret service activities and the consequences of these activities that are causing many unrest and insecurity in the world today.
