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?

Social democracy is watered-down socialism, no?
Government-owned media, power, and other infrastructure (where competition makes no sense, because it needs to be ubiquitous) is a weakened form of government ownership of the means of production.

Once you take subsidies and investments in research and businesses into account, you may not have a socialist state, but it's not a free market either; it's in the middle.
