"What exactly are we protecting from what? If, instead of spending trillions of dollars on spying and domestic surveillance, we had spent that same money on repairing our infrastructure and improving our schools, wouldn't we now have a safer, stronger America?"
"It’s time to face these arguments directly. So here are ten myths about NSA surveillance that need debunking. Let's sort them out"
1) NSA surveillance is legal
2) If I’ve done nothing wrong, I have nothing to hide. So why should I care about any of this?
3) But the media says the NSA only collects my "phone metadata," so I'm safe
4) Aren’t there are already checks and balances in our system to protect us against NSA overreach?
5) But I trust Obama (Bush, the next president) on this
6) But don't private companies like Facebook already have access to and share a lot of my personal data? So what's wrong with the government having it, too?
7) All this surveillance is distasteful and maybe even illegal, but isn’t it necessary to keep us safe? Isn’t it for our own good? Haven’t times changed and shouldn’t we acknowledge that?
8) Terrorists are everywhere and dangerous
9) We've stayed safe. Doesn't that just prove all the government efforts have worked?
10) But doesn’t protecting America come first -- before anything?
"... make sure that [you] do whatever it takes to build the capacity to manage and measure results and to then supply that information to the donors of America. THAT is the road beyond nonprofit overhead!"
