In order to protect you properly, we need to spy on you enormously. Does this sound like a fair or a win-win scenario to you? The White House is a breath away from passing the Protecting Cyber Networks Act. So, what is the catch with a new member of the numerous cyber laws family?
Well, to make the long story short, we will get more surveillance in an exchange for the better cyber security. It seems that our government just cannot get enough of additional authorizations. One fine day, we will not need laws in this extremely controversial field.
Why? Because, every single moment and every available square inch are going to be covered by the state’s surveillance, this way or another. We have every reason to believe that we are not going to make it to the 2084 in order to have a proper anniversary. Are we being too much pessimistic?
Ask Edward Snowden for a second opinion, because he certainly has a lot to tell you about it. In the meantime, there is no other comfort for you than a timeless NSA advice. If you have nothing to hide, then there is nothing to worry about. Seriously? Is that all we are left with?
