I think that this needs to be put into greater context. We have seen the rise of legislation and actions that have curbed our civil liberties in the name of the War on Terror ever since 9/11. First it was the Patriot Act, then the 2006 Military Commissions Act, then the establishment of "free speech zones," the militarization of the police, finally, we had the viscous attacks on Occupy chapters nationwide where people's First Amendment rights were ignored and trampled upon. We are seeing the rollback of the freedoms we once had and the concentration of power in the hands of the Executive Branch. This is extremely dangerous, not only for citizens, but for the democratic experiment we call the United States of America.
