Don't like what the University of California is doing, no problem, bag it, rag on it, grind it's reputation to dust. The charge to much, their degrees are shit, the professors abuse students, the facilities are horrible, make them spend ten times as much as they saved on countering negative publicity. Hate what they did, let them feel that financial pain. Don't forget they have no pretty much abandoned to privacy of their students to a foreign contractor. Why would any business trust them with research when a foreign outsourcing contractor now controls access to those secrets. Doing research, a new thesis, a major book, well, now all you work is open to foreign entities, your secrets up for sale (don't think so, think how much they are worth and how much and underpaid H1B can sell the for, especially compared to the sub-standard wage). Research Universities want to open up the network security to foreign 'FOR PROFIT' entities, well, it's major emergency time to shift all the research, delete the data and all backups, otherwise you will see a foreign company suddenly releasing that research et al as their own.
You want to know exactly how I would spy on a country, fill it full of espionage agents pretending to be cheap H1B labour, all operating independently upon seize opportunities as they come up and there will be major rewards for success (no comms leaks, no conspiracy links, just take your chances for major rewards, part ownership of the secrets obtained and passed on, and wow, is US security leaky as across the board and it is just starting to get really bad, some have been there for a quite a while, good luck). By secrets I mean every single kind, industrial, financial, extortion, everything of value and the agents work until they have build up sufficient 'er' investments to retire back home.
