In the News "Internet users worried about their personal information being intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies should stop using websites that send data to the United States, Germany's top security official said Wednesday." Cute, but pointless. France does it too, as does the UK. Documents from the Dutch intelligence agencies indicate that they, too, are involved in mass surveillance, the extent of which will supposedly be investigated by parliament.

About the only way to get out of this is living in a cave somewhere with no electricity and no internet or going the opposite direction and disappearing as a nameless homeless person in a major city.

EDIT: This is starting to sound eerily like Shadowrun....

Amusingly, our government would have us believe that only terrorists do this too.
