NSA spying. Yawn...
Seems like a perfectly logical outcome of "government" to me.
Seriously, what other outcome could you possibly imagine when you allow thieves to gather together in the light of day and not only survive, but thrive? Doesn't this just encourage them to keep pushing the envelope to see what else they can get away with? Of course it does.
Allowing a group of thugs to coordinate and operate under the name "government" is a losing game. When you justify their gang in any way, however carefully, you have already lost. You may not know it yet, but you will either learn or you will die ignorant.
I hope that if you are a supporter of any of the "wars on everything" or "law enforcement" of any sort, you will learn something from this. If not, keep crouching and licking those blood-dripping hands.
