I created this video as a response to peoples assertion that they aren't concerned about NSA surveillance because they have nothing to hide.

You can view it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmNfOWb-qL0

I'd be happy to hear feedback on the video and to know, what (if anything) we missed? Thanks all, this is something that we all need to be discussing whether you are on the right, left or indifferent.

ZenDog, if you head over to Hubski, my username there is the same "thenewgreen" please do say hello and I'll be sure to follow you.

We have different "settings" for how Hubski looks, perhaps we should create the "old person" setting with large comic sans font :)

You write: One commentator makes the mistake of assuming we must all look over our shoulder - the citizen has to look over their shoulder the citizen has to be wary of government

I think what he's saying or alluding to is that the paradigm has shifted to one where the citizen fears his govt more than the other way around. This isn't anything new though, think of the "Senate Committee for Unamerican Activities." It's just that now we are ALL being watched and not just potential communist sympathizers.

Anyways, hit me up on Hubski, I'd be glad to talk more with you there. Cheers!
