Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

This is going to act as a wake up call to governments and populations around the world, the worst thing the government could have hoped for.


No, it won't. There's plenty of cash to fill pockets with and plenty of pockets in need of filling -- a handful of people will voice their dissatisfaction, but that's all it'll amount to.
