Invading our privacy to keep us safe is voodoo communication, it is false. We must stop listening to the words of government and start looking at their actions.

"al-Qaeda and bin Laden were behind the 9/11 attacks"

"Iraq has weapons of mass destruction"

"Afghanistan is where the 9/11 attacks were commandeered from"

"We need this Patriot Act to keep us safe"

"They're too big to fail"

"It takes a good person with a gun to take out a bad person with a gun"

And the quotes go on while we continue to be less safe, not from possible foreign invaders but from within -- our own government.

First, make no mistake the "us" is nobody but the government.   Invading the privacy of individual citizens   is to keep the government informed and safe against any "attacks", real or philosophical.

In reality, the government could not care less about you and I and the proof is in their actions.

While our government is snooping into our interpersonal communications, they have expanded it to corporations (maybe the reality is corporations are actually our government) who can now snoop into our bank accounts. Rather than ensuring our privacy in personal financial matters they have made us less secure by giving corporations the ability to snoop on us legally.

Corporations are also allowed to poison our food through a variety of methods, the GMO process being the latest weapon of mass destruction used. Some states even go so far as to make the purchase of generic foods unavailable to food stamp recipients. They can only purchase GMO poisoned foods.   While other nations throughout the world are banning such foods in order to keep their citizens safe, ours continues to pass laws encouraging the use of these poisoned foods.

While statistics show those living in poverty tend to have more health-related problems and meet an earlier death than those having a better living standard so it appears the government helps them to an earlier grave by making them purchase poisoned foods. That's keeping   us safe?

Further the government has imposed many more regulations on generic foods than on the poisoned GMO counterparts.

As if poisoning our food isn't enough there has been the explosion of the hydraulic fracturing, fracking, process in procuring oil and gas.   This process injects huge quantities of silica sand, fresh water, and compounds of toxic chemicals under extreme pressure into the ground.   The effects create highly toxic wastewater and hazardous air that have had serious effects to citizens. To the government keeping us safe makes laws that prohibit such processes from being less than 500 feet from our residence or 300 feet from fresh water ponds. As though that distance eliminates pollution of air and water.
