I prefer to break issues down to their lowest common denominators . . . Snowden . . . NSA . . . cracking PERSONAL encrypted information . . .
Think about all of this in the following two different aspects —
It isn’t proper to say, “I have nothing to hide.”
Whereas, I do not mind God seeing and hearing all of my private thoughts, correspondence, and pictures – I DO MIND Satan looking at them and twisting them in any way except how I intended. That word intended doesn’t help you at all when Satan decides to read into your private thoughts, correspondence, and pictures from his really evil view. It is important to remember that Satan has rule over the Earth temporarily.
Have you had a friend or spouse who read something different than what you meant into things you have said or written? Have you had a friend or spouse that pestered you for your opinion on something, then immediately took issue with whatever you said that they forced out of you? Do you think strangers would be more interested in your actual meaning, or applying their own prejudices to whatever you write or say?
FISA COURTS are anti-constitutional and have every opportunity to destroy our U.S. Constitutional Bill of Rights by the very nature of being secretive in their actions against whomever they please. We have a right to public trial, and to know exactly who our accusers are, and what we are being accused of. WE ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY by a preponderance of evidence in a legal trial before a jury of our peers. No GOVERNMENTAL ENTITY has the right to our private thoughts, correspondences, and pictures. Should there be a need to our personal information for a specific legal trial in an American court, those kinds of issues are resolved via the Judge issuing a warrant for specific information during such a trial. All diligent care must be afforded American citizens for such warrants to only be granted the right to specific information regarding a trial – and not a fishing expedition.
By common sense reasoning of the above two aspects, I do not trust any person or entity (especially government persons or entities) to read my personal thoughts and correspondences – or to view or edit my pictures. It is reasonable to expect others, especially strangers, to impose their prejudices upon my personal information.
