Why bother with a trial if it's going to be secret?

Bad law, hope to god this does not get through, I fear it may. We are threatened with the bogeyman so often many people think we need this crap, which we do not- as always the potential for abuse is enormous.

This is actually a step forward. Before this, instead of secret trials with a judge and an objective basis for a ruling, there were secret executive orders without trial.

Whatever else these proposals do, it certainly gives a new perspective on the old fallacy that "if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear". If you have something that you legitimately need or wish to hide, which many of us do, there's plenty to fear about being forced to be open.
