I applaud your semtiments, Proto. But I think you misinterpret mine.
I am no coward!
In fact, I mean to create an ends to this madness!
I am in fact, more dangerous than most (this is what I mean to avoid)...
Everyone knows the danger. We are all here. We see the reports.
What I'm saying is that now the time is to nod and say.. "okay, thanks for the report. They are in the wrong and one day they will be cast assunder. Afteral, that is the scripture they justify through proxy, right?"
Sorry to be cryptic.
I am no coward.

How can America keep criticizing North Korea when we are becoming so close to them day by day?

Who physically does this monitoring? Humans,...super-computer? I'm sure, at the very least, they gather info on targeted groups, but I'm having trouble understanding how the physical process itself would operate on a scale where millions are surveilled, given the manpower it would take to do it. Does anyone know? It seems like a tedious task that is largely pointless for a government unless you've got intel on some dissident group who's gonna overthrow the government.
I mean, the majority of us are just living a daily routine and pose no threat. Who the hell cares what the average guy is talking about on his cell phone or what he's posting on some social website? It seems to be an exercise in futility.
If this is truly the goal of any of our governments, then whomever is at the heart of this operation is a paranoid mental case. Either that or they need to cut back on their crack smoking.

The illusion of privacy is no longer necessary. That is what should scare you.
Unless you are targeted for surveillance you have nothing to fear.
Do nothing that will threaten them and you will be okay.
Your lives and EVERYTHING you do is an open and adjustable book for them.

What do you plan to do about it? Who do you think should lead the charge against these lunatics? They hold the main source to all of America's minds, Television. The biggest news companies are all friends and most likely own shares in other smaller companies.
The key is to have lots of entertainment so the people don't care about real news. That is why Athletes get paid $50 million for 5 years, to keep you guys busy and in a zombie like state.
You guys must seriously do something soon. Because there will be future false flags against the people. This won't stop until you guys round people up and make a change. You don't need a revolution, what you need is 1/2 a million people in front of the white house demanding change.

Did any of you actually read the complaint or the decision?
I am appalled by the lack of intelligence on ATS in issues such as this.
The EFF case was brought by people who claimed that they MIGHT have been subject to surveillance. The Heptig case was brought by people who claimed actual invasion of privacy.
The subject complaint, about potential for surveillance is a POLITICAL question, not subject to judicial review.
If you do not like the practice, you have a POLITICAL remedy:
Vote the bastards out.
