Since the whistle blower leak in June about NSA spying programs targeting U.S. citizens, news media organizations have reported heavily about government spying programs. Some news reports have focused on the difficulty achieving a balance between protection from terrorists and maintaining civil liberties. Some believe that balance is way off. Some people refuse to give up the civil liberties for protection. Some people are happy to make that trade.
Regardless, the subject is very controversial. So, I have added a new topic in the tag cloud in the near right column for this content. The "Surveillance" topic includes content where we will explore these and related issues. If you seek similar content about programs by corporations, you should also browse the "Behavioral Advertising" topic.
I hope that you like the new category.
