So it turns out the NSA has been spying on everything we do. Some people seem to be shocked by this.
Perhaps it makes me an untrusting person, but I think that when there is a means to do something, and enough entities that have a motivation to do it, it’s pretty much a sure thing that somebody is. Or at least, it’s likely enough that one ought to prepare for it or assume it’s happening. The easier the means and the stronger the motivation, the more this holds true.
And tapping information that is already flowing so freely is too easy and seductive to imagine it’s not happening.
