Good article. 

One thing that always strikes me about the people who believe they have nothing to fear from such all-encompassing 
surveillance as practiced by the likes of the NSA is that, ultimately, they fail to realize they won't be the ones who 
get to decide whether or not they have anything to hide.

One of the grand objectives of the NSA's surveillance, storage, and analysis capabilities is the ability to build 
networks of associations. So, even if you don't have "anything to hide," can you vouch for all your associates, and 
their associates, and so on?

I'm afraid that one of the more insistent lessons of history is that when heads start to roll,  those purges acquire a 
madness and momentum that cuts a very wide swath before they exhaust themselves.
