here was a ted talk, i believe, and one guy from Sweden was saying - if somebody is watching me, i would prefer it to be local NSA, rather than US NSA.
Well, I envy him. He trusts local NSA so much. He believes that it’s not engaged in crime, corruption, unlawful activities. At least, it’s likely engaged less than the NSA of my country. Thus he feels himself more confident than me.
I am afraid of my local NSA more than of wolves, vampires, ghosts. It’s not they who might nock my door at 5am, when I am completely innocent. And definitely not US NSA. It’s my native, lovely, NSA. Which supposedly defends interests of the nation, but I am not quite sure it does not actually defend interests of other parties like their own, government, criminals instead. Sigh.
