“The NSA’s Global Threat to Free Speech”

When the “World Wide Web” was created, I wonder if they would be surprised at the fight of privacy today. The very thing this country was built upon, freedom will forever be a battle to have it actually attained. Now the internet is there to connect with people variously and globally. How can’t the right to do that freely be up for sakes? In reality we understand there is a “Big Brother” that watches us and I’m not referring to religion. Surveillance is everywhere and everything we do is tractable. While I think of that as a safety precaution, it’s taken out of context and we citizens of the world are being stripped of something we shouldn’t have to ask for.

Interesting enough, the ICANN (the Internet of Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is a real US based organization which coordinates the assignment of unique identifiers that allow computers around the world to find and recognize each other. Remotely people can access your computer, just for simple troubleshooting Dell goes in and you see the cursor moving. Did it ever occur to you if they can do that from all over the word, your information could be attained as well? I only think this idea is necessary when it helps me. I sometimes feel helpless because as the years grow, geeks are finding new ways to invade computers.  I mean a judge can order for a tracking of phone numbers and with today’s text messaging don’t ever think something you deleted is actually that. The next techy person will definitely prove you wrong on their end.

My question is why? Letting the public know their information is public, leaves everyone with a question mark as what to do now. Fighting is winning the battle. I only see people refraining from technology, then being the reason the situation would be justified. We make things go and having nothing technology would send a message.
