The Problem With Snooping

As I see it, the problem with the enormous domestic intelligence gathering program lies in our human nature.

Just as we see human difficulties in these systems now, the potential for future abuse, break-downs, and outright criminal activity is brought back to us, reminding us that everything devised by man will sooner or later be degraded into a scam.

Whether future politicians will abscond with our liberties, or future IT specialists will come up with schemes that mirror a Die Hard film, any such outcomes are of high probability; the probability of long term good shepherding of personal data and honor and rectitude are very small: one reason being that the standards of what is "correct" and "good" by NSA dictate are already breached.

Therefore, the probability of abuse is extremely high, in my opinion.
