well since they like to play picard, i will too.
"there are words i have known since i was a child: 'with the first link a chain is forged. the first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied chains us all irrevocably' those were the words of admiral sativ, his wisdom and his warning. when one man's freedoms are trodden on, we are all damaged"
(might not be exact, going from memory)
i too have committed those words to memory, and so should everyone at the NSA. you do us all a great disservice. if you think you are helping the american people you are not, you are paving the way towards totalitarianism, you chain us all. and if anyone at the NSA reads this, take snowden's example, your loyalty to the american people trumps any loyalty to the NSA.
