When does this march towards total surveillance on the citizens of this country end? Every day there are new revelations on the scope of National Security Administration programs designed to monitor our communications and locations. Now we find out that NSA spying broke privacy rules thousands of times. The never-ending war on terrorism is the excuse government uses to wield its absolute political authority to expand programs for tracking all of us.
Meanwhile, there will continue to be a loss of freedoms and protections as the government rapes the Bill of Rights. The use of technology for surveillance is still in its infancy. Just imagine what our society will look like in 20 years. The new normal, for future generations, is starting to look like our worst nightmare.
