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.

If it was for the citizens' own good, why did they deny it in the first place? The fact that they are now revealing the program to the public means no one can overturn the decision and all the pieces are in place. Seriously, if that's the case, isn't it something against the constitution?

Anyway, I think it's time to move our information/data off the surveillance state.
