Some of you would wonder if the Surveillance scandal of 2013 will be remember in 2050? I really can’t say for sure in the past few hours the US Government has issued an arrest for Edward Snowden. It really looks quite suspicious that the government uses this tactic. It seems almost like they want to blame someone who wanted to let the world and the his fellow US citzen the right to know what they are doing. This is getting quite scary as some of you would like. With Obama on his last term as president, we have to wonder what will happen for the next 3 years. Will he make our privacy just as bad as China?
Tech Giants are the ROOT to this!
Most Tech giants are afraid of the government and what will happen to their reputation if they were to be truthful. I really doubt the government would do anything but slap them for saying no. They afford so much of this blame that seems to be going around and around in circles. One company blames another company and it is an endless blame. Just like the US government is blaming Snowden for leaking this information, you wonder why all the fuss about leak. He didn’t leak any personal information such as people and social security numbers.
Tempora program and The British Secret Service!
While we are on the subject of PRISM, we have to at least show that it has been going on in other governments around the world and good old James Bond likes his Tempora Program “Shaken, Not stirred”. We’ve see that the US isn’t the only one doing the serviceable of their people. Quite scarey isn’t it? The Tempora program is a co-operation between the NSA and Britain exchanging information about what people do.
What can I do?
