Oh I agree 100%. It just makes me sad that governments keep trying to spy and we have to keep coming up with new technology to make that harder.

It's not a technology problem, it's a social one. If a society values it's privacy enough then it will change.

The real issue is how abstract the consequences of loss of privacy are. It requires people to actually think beyond "I've got nothing to hide".

No worries though. Greedy corporations and governments are greedy and they'll keep pushing the limits of societie's tolerance until it blows up in their face.

Governments are way scarier though. I can decide not to use Google, people in third world countries need the internet.

It's both, everyone can contribute to the solution or the problem.
