PRISM, and why you should care…

PRISM is the codename given by the NSA - National Security Agency - to a program that essentially allows for limitless access to data collected by companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and much more. It was put into place by the government to better keep track of foreigners that could be threats to the safety of the United States, its citizens, and its allies.

This all sounds well and good right? And it is, in theory at least. But we need to analyze the impact of what could happen as a result of all of this data being stored and analyzed. What if the NSA accidentally marked you as a threat? They’d now be pouring through every single online presence, communication, post, private documents, that you’ve ever written. All this for someone that was completely innocent.

Let’s think dramatically for a moment. We all like to think that the government has the best intentions for the good of its people, but look around you! Countries everywhere are under duress as citizens protest against the governments that don’t care for their safety, rights, or beliefs. Anyone who says that this could never happen in the United States is just plain ignorant. So let’s say that the government becomes its citizens’ enemy. They have access to ALL of our information. Anything that you have ever said or written that has been recorded is now at the hands of the NSA. This can be used to eliminate protestors, and limit our free speech.

A less extreme circumstance: Nothing is truly secure. These massive data farms are vulnerable to being hacked by some very dangerous people. The United States has plenty of enemies. If an attack on a server farm happened, your data and personal information is now in the hands of people who wish nothing but harm to come to you.

Your privacy matters. Start fighting for it, goddammit.

I could be rendered by the C.I.A., I could have people come after me…and that’s a fear I’ll live under for the rest of my life.
