The Day We Fight Back
There are major steps being taken to help end the mass surveillance of United States Citizens. The Good Doctor here would like to encourage you to take steps yourself to help us. Regardless of your thoughts on Snowden, current politics, or otherwise, the unchecked collection of data by the NSA is monumental and Orwellian. Each and every one of us is currently being treated like a suspect. This sort of life under glass is the first step in enabling the boot on the face of humanity forever. So come on folks, let’s try to end mass surveillance and tell our leadership that we will not exchange liberty for safety and complacency. Call or write your representative and tell them to do their job and represent their people and not their own interests.
Strike at the root.
Update: It was brought to my attention that James Sensenbrenner Jr (R-WI), author of this bill, wrote the legislation that allowed for the collection of our data in the first place. I decided to continue due diligence and investigate this bill. I have read it and have decided to keep my link up. The wording of the proposed legislation enables actions that the ACLU and many other advocacy groups support for ending mass data collection and increased law enforcement transparency and public accountability. The PATRIOT act was a poorly worded, knee jerk document, and people make mistakes. People can rectify mistakes as well. Sensenbrenner’s moderate voting record is commendable in the current political atmosphere, and while I don’t agree with all of his platforms, I appreciate his ability to negotiate and to acknowledge that PRISM was far outside of the scope of what he intended and has taken steps to rectify the situation.
