The question today ain't so much whether you're paranoid, it's more whether you're paranoid enough.
I mean, think about it. Ponder that you told someone in 1999 that all our email traffic is monitored by the government, that they log and examine every bit you do on the internet, that they use your cell phone to track your every move and that they basically log, store, monitor and evaluate every kind of communication you do, be it via phone or internet, and that they track what you read, who you talk to, what you talk about and what information you access.
Personally, I'd have asked you whether you want to buy a new tinfoil hat, now with even better anti-government shielding.
Today, I'd ponder buying one.
