There's just some things that the population is better off not knowing

Your secrets:
> Porn.
> Weird porn.
> Even weirder porn.
> Nobody gives two ***** about them because you're 1 in 300,000,000 - why would they care about your **** .

Their secrets:
> Billions of dollars of research.
> Countless secret operations that have the potential to spark wars.
> Secrets of national security that could cost lives.

Of course we'd probably be more understanding if the government could actually be trusted these days. But still, the point remains.

Yes, this NSA phone **** shouldn't have been a secret. There are certain things that are necessary to keep confidential, though. If we had access to all counter-terrorism measures being taken by our government, so would the people that are trying to hurt this country. If they know what they are fighting, there is always a way around every tactic, and they could easily figure it out. It's not like this is a new thing. Secret government programs have been in place since the birth of this country.

Actually, I very clearly remember reading about the national "pen registry" on wikipedia YEARS ago.

I'm really more surprised that people are surprised about this. I thought mostly every knew.
User avatar #214 to #213 - brenton (06/14/2013) [-]
Well, maybe not "easily figure it out," but someone would find a way eventually.

My father told me something 20 years ago that stuck with me.


"Don't give your leader the power to alter your freedom even for your own good, even if this leader won't. the next leader that you may not like may abuse the same power"

And look now. While some of you are Obama fans, some of you were Bush fans stop and think for a second. The same laws that people agreed with Bush passing are now complaining about Obama using them. What do you think will happen? When laws are being made, you have to figure for the next 50 years who will be using them. What laws has Obama passed that his fans were happy with that the next president will abuse?


I know I'm entering red thumb hell here, I'm ok with that. GUN RIGHTS. I said it, gun rights. While the current government may have altruistic plans for our society, what about the next president? We seen one president get one over on the American people in the name of fighting terrorism. But look now. The same laws are being used to, for the first time in history since Lincoln, try to arrest members of the press. A decade ago, no one would have thought the government would use the same law to try to convict a member of the press of treason for breaking a story. Yet, here we are.

So I'm asking, what gun rights will you give away during this false flag that a decade from now, with different leadership, you'll regret?

"whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without that law is both."

I love how the internet is up in arms over this, especially considering this is the second time it happened. Exact same situation happened nearly 10 years ago, same uproar, simmered down, everyone forgot, nothing changed.
User avatar #225 to #194 - ltsparky (06/14/2013) [-]
One could argue that the historical climate was vastly different in the days following 9/11, as opposed to just spying on people because it seems fun. Plus, the George Bush era Patriot Act programs targeted suspected terrorists, not just a vast swath of the public, like it seems to be now.
#197 to #194 - deadpeople (06/14/2013) [-]
We have evolved.
#198 to #197 - dwarfman (06/14/2013) [-]
Same reaction as last time. It will be forgotten about, and they will continue their spying. Why? Because the internet is not full of revolutionaries, just people who talk a big game and pretend to do something about it.

A single posting on facebook started the Arab spring, causing the death of over 100,000 people and several nations to overthrow their government. I disagree with your assessment. I will say though, theres a huge difference between middle eastern nations and the US. We're a spoiled society. Our life has an individualistic value. This life matters more than any other perceived life for 99% of our society. Our nation will not ever overthrow the government until the masses view no life or an after life as a better alternative to their current life. That's easily 20-30 years of a bunch of worst case scenarios going down in the US.
#243 to #208 - graaawp (06/17/2013) [-]
Actually, the Arab Spring really took off after a Tunisian street vendor's self-immolation. That's a bit more of a spark than just a tweet.

There are a lot of followers in every culture (just don't say that to them) and they don't do anything until there's a ringleader to follow. But when they are galvanized by something, they can sweep away governments.

But we're fat and lazy, they were restricted of so many fundamental things. They even had to worry about where their food was coming from, we have to worry about what the government sees us looking up on the internet.

I don't think I've ever seen so much stupid in the comment section before. This post is a perfect example that Funnyjunk is run by 12 year olds who dont know **** about politics. If the government gave out information, the terrorists would know all of our plans. The fact is, you liberals are so stupid from smoking so much pot, that you dont even know how politics works.
User avatar #216 to #184 - chiefrunnyjeans (06/14/2013) [-]
I'm conservative and apparently you're the one who's completely ignorant when it comes to politics. I'm so sick of explaining this but here it goes:
The NSA has been collecting 3 billion phone records from EVERYONE per day for 12 years. They have been collecting all your personal data for just as long. They have had access to facebook, google, yahoo, aol, and many more servers where they collect and organize data indiscriminately. The terrorist thing is just a lie and a cover for what they are really doing and we need to bring them down.
#244 to #216 - graaawp (06/17/2013) [-]
Well, I think that the way the database works - or is *supposed* to work, at least - is that it collects all of this information about us and stores it in encrypted form. And no one gets to look at it until they have details on a specific threat and get a warrant. The relevant records - and only the relevant records - are then decrypted for analysis.

And if that's how it works, I'm ok with it. Because stopping a terror plot is time-sensitive, and once there's been a warrant issued, the authorities should be able to get the data they need as fast as possible.
#215 to #184 - caplocker (06/14/2013) [-]
I think the NK citizen missed the point. Claiming that you have nothing to hide if you're doing nothing wrong doesn't work. While our government "needs" to hide documentation on some sensitive information we're entitled to some privacy.


You agree too, that's why you posted as anon. While none of us know who you are ,you can be sure somewhere in the government your IP is recorded and they know who you are.
#205 to #184 - teranin ONLINE (06/14/2013) [-]
I'm a conservative, and you're a coward. Freedom should mean more to the people than safety, that's a founding principle of our nation. Get a grip.

To those that argue against this:

If you say "well if you have nothing to hide, you shouldn't fear," then you're addressing the problem of crime and most anti-american activity. They hide it. Most that are actually serious about what they're doing avoid any public exposure at all costs, meaning searching through the public will only bring empty hands 99% of the time, and it just unjustly invades our privacy.

If you say, "Well, I'll never be a target," think about this: The IRS is currently under fire for targeting Conservative groups seeking tax exception. This is leading all the way up to the higher ups of the IRS and seemingly has government influence. In Benghazi, whistle blowers claim that ground generals were ordered directly to stand down, despite evidence it was an attack. If a corrupt leadership has access to such control, they will defend their agenda with illegal and unjust means. If you overstep a line, or even hint that you are against them, or maybe you want to be a politician, they become ********** of your activity, and you're a target. (Which they also have access to stuff that maybe is not illegal, per se, but certainly can be blackmail material)

Historically, any country that invades privacy to such a degree and keeps going ends up with poor living conditions, notoriously intimidating and controlling police and prison systems, and eventually their economy collapses entirely and a new government has to come in and take it's place.

I'm sure the old phrase from Ben Franklin is getting old, but it's that saying in practice. The US has been and should be a self-secure state with trust in it's public to help it prosper. When you give so much power to only a few people, either they or their country will fail. It is inevitable.

Everyone should start saying hostile and illegal things on Skype, that way we turn the system on itself rendering it useless.

Oh how great would that be? If the people of this country actually knew what it's government was doing.
