What’s interesting to me about this is that we spend so much money on NSA, but there are so few terrorists, and their search algorithms can’t possibly approach 99.9999% accuracy. So the point seems to be about enabling casual harassment, or to provide a blind for not-so-casual harassment.
Also it’s worth noting that many people in this world live in circumstances where Internet privacy is far from the top of their list of things to be concerned about. This all is in some ways an elitist concern.
Not to say I’m okay with fourth amendment violations. I’m most certainly not. I’m even more not okay with ones that are so blatantly falsely being sold as necessary, though.
