I find it interesting how things have slowly been progressing in stages. Only little things gradually so that people aren't bothered by the overall direction things are going. Just accepting these small uncomfortable changes, one at a time.

It's much less specific than that. Let's say you're falsely accused of a crime fifteen years from now. Basically, thanks to this surveillance network the government and associated corporations could look back at everything you've ever googled, every image you've ever looked at on the internet, et cetera, until there is enough 'evidence' to see you behind bars anyway. The de facto power this gives the U.S. government is that of, hypothetically, being able to detain any and all citizens regardless of whether or not they've purposely done anything wrong in their lives.

Not to mention that the surveillance extends beyond U.S. borders to people who have never so much as set foot on U.S. soil. And no, it's not paranoid to be worried about this; this is the sort of absolute control that most governments have dreamed of for centuries.

I said it's much less specific than that. A lot of the things us internet-dwellers look at and read could be considered 'reason for concern' if taken out of context, and that's exactly what would happen if they had reason to want to shut you up. I don't want to talk to you like you're a five-year-old, but please just-.. think beyond terrorism and bomb instructions.

I got the joke, sure, I'm just assuming you're being somewhat serious as well. If not, I'm not really sure why you are joking about it.

The government isn't spying on us, so to speak. They might record our actions, but nobody actually looks at those recordings until we're suspected of something. Do you realize how many workers it would take to actually trawl through all the mundane **** that goes on in most people's lives? The government isn't going to waste time doing this unless the person already has their interest.

Most of the **** they collect is stuff you share publicly anyways. If you don't mind everyone else in the world knowing it why the **** do you care if the government knows it?

It doesn't matter if they're going to use the information or not. The fact that they have all that information is terrifying. I have absolutely nothing to hide, but no one should be allowed to know how I use the Internet in my own house.

That it's an international entity doesn't exclude our right of privacy. The government's out of line.

I'm pretty sure that masturbation is the sole reason people are afraid of government surveillance. It makes no sense, but vague arguments about "not wanting the government to see what I browse" is all I've ever heard.
User avatar #23 to #22 - keiishiyama (07/01/2013) [-]
Our right of privacy is not void simply because we're on the Internet. If I wouldn't share it willingly with my friends, no one but myself deserves to know about it.

US is spying on its allies though...

Think about it, if they find someone they disagree with, like a certain politician or writer, they can release information on everyone he cheated with, any past addictions, etc.
the NSA has the power to make anyone they want look like the bad guy.
as far as I know they're the only ones who decide who's "suspected" and worth going into

If someone had video of me taking every **** I've ever taken, the fact that they aren't actually watching it wouldn't make me feel much better.

Well, no reason to respond to all of these comments when they all basically say "It's not okay because I want to keep my public life private to the government for no reason at all". Thanks, funnyjunk, for proving yet again that you are not only a breeding ground for directionless hatred but also incapable of forming rational counter-arguments.
#4 to #1 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Because it's the government that's doing it...
It's insignificant that the government is spying on us, but it's the government doing something that it's not supposed to be doing that's important. Democrats and "liberalism" no longer go hand in hand; the party as basically devolved into statism.
User avatar #5 to #4 - satanisthesavior (07/01/2013) [-]
So let me get this straight, the government (you know, the group of people whose job it is to govern) is doing something wrong by peeking at information that we share publicly? I honestly do not see an issue with this at all. They are not looking for mundane **** (police officers still need warrants to get phone and email records from the respective companies), they are looking for people who are a threat to the country as a whole.

Besides, what with the sudden rise in people who are afraid the government will attack us in open warfare (seriously? SERIOUSLY?), I can't really blame them for being worried that they might have dissidents in the population...

"that we share publicly"

Like all your emails and private pictures?

Dont send people nudes , easy as that you slut


im just jokeing
User avatar #9 to #8 - satanisthesavior (07/01/2013) [-]
Nothing that I've said in an email is private knowledge. The specific words, yes, but not the subjects. I don't consider it private knowledge to know that I do indeed have a facebook account or that I use State Farm insurance on my car.

As for pictures, I don't have any that are of the private variety. Even if I did though, I'd never send them over email.
#42 to #9 - anon (07/01/2013) [-]
Yes because they are only monitoring e-mails it not like same argument you just said could be apply to free acces to your computer at all time thatwaythey don't need tutored your data twice what you naive ?

Give a man an inch and he'll take a mile, the fact of the matter is that the government shouldn't have that kind of power, and yet, its been growing bigger, and bigger, but nothing has changed. The war on drugs is failing, social security is failing, the economy is failing, everything is becoming contrived.   
   
So much money being burned, trillions in debt, and now they want to record all things. The government is becoming big brother, and wasting all of our money.   
   
This country is sick, and corrupt. And the funny thing is, is that the more 			********		 that goes on the more... people will snap with our laughably delusional society.   
   
It's called privacy, it's called not having a big dick following you everywhere you go, abut not having a camera on every street, about not having every conversation recorded, about not being somebodies bitch.    
   
But that isn't all, lots of people are saying lots of thing that's conspiracy today, and most likely it will only come to light a few decades later after all that stuff has grown beyond quick remedy.

Alright, here's my opinion. I for one don't care that much about the government keeping records on me (implying they do). For the most part I'm a law abiding citizen (great movie), so why should I be worried. In the past I've sent texts and messages that could possibly get me in trouble, yet I haven't. People are too paranoid about things. Yes the government does sneaky things behind our backs, yes they probably care about money more than happy citizens, but it's our own faults for putting these people in power. Greed and power lust is a part of human nature. I don't believe the government is trying to enslave humanity and become supreme leaders to sell as food to aliens. The only thing they want is more money and to see that more like-minded people come behind them. The only thing I'm worried about is how far this stuff has the potential to go. (. )( .) boobs

i really have no reason to be upset that they are watching. besides do you really think that there is some big building somewhere where people are reading through every single thing anyone has written? they probably filter everything checking for specific words that attract attention. if someone has written something with a long string of words that attract attention, they investigate further. if they really are spending all their time looking through everyone's records all the time, then good for ******* them for wasting time.

I know there's this rumour in England that if you say certain words on the phone all of your phone calls from then on will be moniterd.
User avatar #36 to #30 - amegaara (07/01/2013) [-]
if you get a minor offense they can dig through all your history and try to get more stuff on you have you ever typed the word ****** ? well thats more stuff for them have you ever searched for a book by a controversial author? have you said anything about hitler? have you looked into stuff thats illegal to look at? (bongs. how can i grow my weed. how do i make plastic guns. etc. etc.) you know all that will add up in the long run and that makes your country truly one of the most hypocritical countries of all time
#40 to #36 - selfdenyingbeggar (07/01/2013) [-]
I think to say it's a hypocritical country is to take credit away. The image that they once deserved because they truly were a free country is now being used to the advantage of those taking their freedom because they think there's just no way that it could happen to them.
User avatar #41 to #40 - amegaara (07/01/2013) [-]
ill just give you two quotes from Benjamin Franklin one of the forefathers

"Let me add, that only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters. "
and
"Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither."

so you see where im coming from with the whole hypocritical country thing

All the government are going to get out of me is:

-Porn
-FJ
-Ordering food/trinkets from Japan
-Anime

I highly doubt that all that will come into any use for them...

If the US government were to keep records of my internet activity I'd be labelled as an eco-terrorist and I would be barred from entering the country.

tl;dr I don't have anything to hide.
