Why it is so important that we let the government know that we will not stand for our activities to be stored like this

The comment you are looking for is the one highlighted in yellow. For those who don’t do links, here’s the gist of it: The commenter lives in an Arab Spring country, (he did not reveal which) generally figured to be a dictatorship. In his country, anyone who is figured to be an “enemy of the state” is killed if they’re lucky, imprisoned and tortured if not. Usually the latter, is what I got from it. Went to a protest of any kind? Jail. Your kid told you he was going to a protest of some kind? Jail. You’re a doctor, and someone who was recently released from prison for going to a protest, called your office? Visit from the police. You took an appointment with him? Jail. You’re a journalist? Jail. Etc. And all of this started with what was essentially the NSA’s PRISM program, and it is our duty as Americans (Hell, since its the Internet, it affects people outside the US, so its our duty as Earthlings) to let our government know that we will NOT stand for this.
