This is beyond ridiculous. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

Oh, the things we do in the name of security. It makes me all warm and fuzzy knowing that the FBI will spend $1 billion to monitor us all on ATS.

Maybe the best thing would be to round us all up now and put us in high-security camps. That way we can't harm ourselves and we'll be easy to protect.
