as a normal U.S. citizen, and *especially* after 9/11/2001, I have felt like certain topics must be tread upon very carefully when conversing with others online. My
own Facebook posts, comments and even "liking" something that might be considered contreversial seemingly spawns a new process in my brain that wants to
ask the question, "Should I really?"
Then you need to seek professional help, because you're showing signs of mental illness.
Really? 9/11? Unjustified war/invasion of Iraq? The Patriot Act? Room 641A? PRISM? Constitutional rights flushed down the toilet in the name of security? You don't see a trend here?
You think these are unfounded concerns and I need professional help because I'm worried about what's getting logged about me and possibly misanalyzed, misfiltered or misrepresented now or at any point in time I might raise a red flag with anyone who has access to my digital fingerprint? You're living in a state of denial. I might be extremely concerned, but I think I have a god damned good reason to be. Everyone should be.
