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.

Guantanamo anyone?


That's mostly for foreign nationals so it's ok because, you know, they're foreigners and don't deserve any freedom or rights. As for the Americans there? Well, they're "obviously" terrorists so that's ok too.

USA is no better or worst than the Soviet Union


As bad as the U.S may be, and its plenty of bad, it's nowhere near the USSR. Yet.
