What is the overall strategy of a surveillance state that continues to build a massive spying apparatus? What are the real purposes behind the “collect it all, tag it, store it” approach to gathering information on every American citizen? Why does the federal government require secret laws, courts, judges and prisons? What will be the long-term impact on society if government nullifies personal privacy? Will such policies make the public safer? And what if there is more to come? In other words, is government’s spying on U.S. citizens just the tip of the iceberg? Are there more injustices in the pipeline?
