The Economic Collapse
June 12, 2013
The rest of the world has found out that the U.S. government has been
listening to their phone calls and watching what they do on the
Internet and they do not like it one bit. Outrage has been pouring in
from all over the planet, and one member of the European Parliament is
even comparing the NSA to the Stasi. But instead of stepping back and
reevaluating our Big Brother spying methods now that they have been
revealed, Barack Obama and other leading members of Congress are
defiantly declaring that there is nothing wrong with these methods and
that no changes will be made. The U.S. government is going to continue
to invade the privacy of the citizens of the rest of the world as much
as it possibly can, and our leaders don’t seem to really care what the
international response is. And make no mistake – the goal of the U.S.
intelligence community is to literally know everything about everyone.
The chief technology officer of the CIA, Gus Hunt, made the following shocking admission back in March: “We fundamentally try to collect everything and hang onto it forever.” He followed that statement up with this gem:
“It is really very nearly within our grasp to be able to compute on all
human-generated information.” In other words, they want it all,
and they nearly have the capacity to gather it all already. So where
does this end? Will the U.S. intelligence community ever be happy until
they have every piece of data on every single person on the entire
planet? Do we really want a government that collects “everything” and
hangs on to it “forever”?
Thanks to Edward Snowden,
the rest of the globe is starting to understand the extent to which the
U.S. government has been spying on them. Needless to say, a lot of
people are extremely upset about this.
In Germany (a country that knows a thing or two about Big Brother
tactics), some prominent politicians are publicly denouncing the
surveillance that the U.S. government has been doing on their citizens.
In fact, one German politician has accused the U.S. of employing“American-style Stasi methods”…
