Thanks to lewrockwell.com for posting this article from the New American regarding the NSA and its desire to watch, listen, record, etc. everything we say and do, every day, all year long. All of those dystopian sci-fi flicks the past 20 years, entertaining us with the idea that governments were everywhere - are actually coming true.
Taxpayer dollars being used to create a massive surveillance center to spy on - yes, taxpayers! For some reason, I wish I was born in like 1640 and lived until 1725 or so. I would have been 99.9% free, with a life basically untouched by government. Those were the days.
In a civilized society, should anyone or any government ever force anyone to do anything against his or her will as long as that person does not infringe upon the life, liberty, or property of another?
