Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

Am I the only one who sees that "secret court orders" violate constitutional rights?

You receive a secret court order. You can't contest it infront of a judge, because you can't reveal it exists. If you contest it and hence you reveal it exists, you are automatically breaking the law. If you don't comply, you are also automatically breaking the law.

As long as there are neckbeards and tools -on a global level- believing all those "do as we say" and "spy on the citizens" acts are being voted to protect us, it will get worse. Dystopian-fiction kind of worse. 'nuff said.
