I have family. At the end of the day (and start of the day) everything I do online doesn't matter if I can't spend time with my family. Also I don't plan to overthrow a government so both options are pretty remote in my life.


I am biased by the fact that I grew up in late Communist Czechoslovakia, but the American self-assuredness that "they only come for the bad guys" strikes me as very short-sighted. Precisely the USA with its long history of systemic discrimination against various outgroups should be wary of this kind of complacency.
