Oh, my. That flattened argument again.
Just for the sake of using it, I ask you a question, Brad:
Do you think that several powerful governments around the world joining together in an effort to SPY on every single one's actions, on and offline and looking to gather defiants of their establishment as 'guardians' of the world, are doing it so YOU, ME and EVERY other person are MORE SECURE? Or simply MORE COMMITTED to their own PRIVATE GOALS?
