    Re: The NSA's Reach Might Be Even Bigger Than We Thought

    This has been happening for decades now. The software to do it was invented during the Soviet era, we're just turning it on our own people now.

    And it's not just the United States doing it. Most of its allies have liberalized domestic spying laws in place now, with memoranda on expanding future uses. Everyone is joining the bandwagon. The reason has nothing to do with terrorism but the state of the world wide web. The government absolutely 100% hates the information age. Knowledge networks threaten government and corporate control, especially now the media is in their pocket. The internet is pretty much our last vestige of freedom of information against statism. Julian Assange and Edward Snowden outlined this very clearly.

    There is a war on information right now and the private spying / espionage industry is getting handed tens of billions of dollars by government to create databases or enhance existing ones. And the scary thing is that aside from the leaks we've graciously received, we don't really know the full extent of what they are up to. Our democracy as we know it is in grave jeopardy and none of our representatives are stepping up to really do anything about it, because most are ignorant of how technology works or none of them want to become targets. The technological elite are separate from the government now. The government hires them and we don't really know what they are gathering, or the kinds of backdoors they are creating in our legal systems.

    People need to wake up. This is not about Obama. This is about private conglomerations seizing control of our information systems that keep the public informed, while simultaneously using other systems to monitor dissent. Oppression is growing and most people are too busy living in materialist la la land to care.

    Once the economy crashes and people are pissed off because the provisions of livelihood are gone or under tight control, all of the systems of oppression that are currently in the works will be unleashed in the open. Maybe once people have to fight for their freedoms again they will come to appreciate them once more.

    Why do you think this thread needs to be moved to the conspiracy section?
