Apologies if this has been mentioned before but I just coudlnt believe the similarities, when compared with current events. In the Dark Knight, Bruce
Wayne created a system using a load of television screens and other equipment to pick up phone calls and communications that mentioned the Joker, and
got Lucius Fox( Morgan Freeman to man the controls). Fox then said that he would refuse to do it as it was ethically incorrect to do so. Batman then
told Lucius that his name was the password to destroy it as it was only in desperation, to catch the fiend known as the joker that he turned to such
invasive technology. Freeman then agreed to do this this once.
Snowden has blown the whistle on the very same system being used on the worlds people to locate and identify threatening people. At the time, nobody
seemed to give Batman a hard rap, as he had his own little version of PRISM. He deemed himself to be enough of an authority to implement PRISM, to use
ti for defence. the only differences between him and the NSA is that A: He had it destroyed immediatly, and B; He actually used it to catch a demonic
In the movie, he was in dire straights, Gotham city was about to be sacked by one man and he turned to this technology. The climate of fear and terror
in the world today, is hardly at similar levels in the first world today, so in my opinion, the yanks have let their paranoia get the better of them
with PRISM and went too far.
If they felt they needed such tech, they should have just went to the people with a case for it and had a referendum and never went the fascist route.
I believe that people are fundamentally good and most guys in the NSA like anywhere are there to do a good job. In this case, protect their people.
They just misjudged how they should have approached it, and went to far with it.
Any countries that they are at war with though, this tech should be fair game, but not their own people for christs sake.
Over and out,
