As long as they can't convict you for what they find or use it for actionable information. They would only do it to search for terrorist activity, just like watching the internet. If you're not planning on taking up any criminal activity, what's the pragmatic case against solidarity? Just seems like paranoia to me...
Probably, though, in reality, I would feel just as uncomfortable as you all being under surveillance. *neutral shrug*
Hint DNA databases: our government developed the bio-weapons to kill off the individual racial stocks two generations ago. I've been lol recently when they've been hinting in the news they might develop them [one of my relatives was the mad scientist that developed one of them]. I don't know if they have targetted ones right now, but the odds are they have them for all the races that make up the big three racial stocks and the more DNA data they collect the more certain it is that they'll be able to kill small groups, families and individuals with it. As I said to Summerland don't let them herd you into the big cities as they're doing
You've also obviously missed the real Snowden leaks that the NSA spying is being done for the corporations and not to caught criminals. Do you really want corporations to know exactly how much you make, your assets and expenses and then decide how much they're going to charge you. To spy on and steal, sabotage or kill any inventors inventing something useful or threatening their existing business.
Ignoring that everything they're going is unconstitutional and against the public good, that the supreme law of America is the constitution and that anyone in or out of government violating it both a criminal and a traitor.
