Yeah it's ok that the government killed a million people in illegal wars and is now guarding poppy fields in afghanistan and giving arms to al qaeda in syria. Who cares? It's over there and not here.
It's ok that they spy on us. It's only digital crap and "I" have nothing to hide.
It's ok that they get rid of all the rights and civil liberties that are ours by right. 1st ammendment, 4th and 5th ammendments. Hell even 2nd ammendment and habeas corpus. They're only doing it t certain people right, and it's not me so who cares?
Every single one of those views are held by people who aren't targets of people in power *right now*. What you don't realize is that allowing the government machine to do this to others just means they can do it to you to at any time of their choosing. You are not safe.
