Just maybe...the technology has bypassed common decency and law. We have opened pandora’s box.
Human nature, as in the last few thousand years, but with a new mode. Don’t miss the German film about the STASI, “The Lives of Others.”
Real danger in this stuff.
The Prez averred in the strongest possible terms that it’s only the METADATA, and not the content.

How is the President NOT lying..?

See I am on your side if you are monitoring me., I am OK., Not like those anti-government quislings . So don't audit me, Audit them,, America-America...

In all honesty, we did that years ago. Today, you and I have more intel gathering ability than all the acronym agencies of the world combined had in the 70s.
Imagine what we don’t know about. Then imagine that very ethically flexible people are in control of it. Then try seeing reality the same way you did yesterday.
Then open a beer.
“How is the President NOT lying..?”

The old joke, “How can you tell when he’s lying? His lips move” is not all that funny any more.
This is somewhat reminiscent of Kenneth Mars in “The Producers” (the original good one) singing “Amerika...für Specious Skies” in a Nazi uniform while looking around warily.
Dick Shawn singing “Love Power” in that movie is IMO the funniest scene ever filmed by Man to this date.
If I ever hear another person say “I have muslim friends” I’m going to ask them “If Islam was the law of the land, do you think you’d be allowed to watch American Idol?”
