My answer to Do you feel safer with the NSA watching everything you do as they look for terrorists?
Answer by Desmond Last:
No. Because they are so busy looking at us that they miss those who are a real threat. All organisations grow and the bigger they are the more exponential the growth.
As they grow their existence becomes to justify increased power. The growth of their bureaucracy and power is then the raison d’etre of why they exist.
The NSA spies on its own citizens. To the NSA every citizen is a potential threat.
However they act against the best interests of the people they are by law required o protect. They use the Internet and the companies who promote the Internet as their own personal fiefdom to spy on us.
Nobody not even Obama knows the extent of their surveillance. There are two reasons for this. Obama cannot then at a later date be directly charged with breaking any laws and they will say of whatever you ask of them ‘It is Classified Information’
The NSA use developing technologies such as brain computer interfaces. Yet we the people have not been involved in any discussion regarding privacy. We also do not know who the NSA have contracted these systems to. What happens if criminals get hold of them?
Organisations like the NSA have become laws unto themselves. The most effective intelligence gathering system is the people. Organisations like the NSA have disaffected people and have lost community co-operation.
