Remember: For all you know there could be a file at this very moment with your name on it. It could detail the names of the people you call, how often you call them, what you say, how often you send text messages and their content. And, thanks to the governments secret Celldar project, this file could detail where you were when you made the calls and sent the text messages. Indeed, in so far as you have a mobile phone and have it switched on, it could detail where you are at this very moment. And you will never know.
And just imagine how useful, or rather, profitable such information would be to large corporations - not to mention the government. Imagine the psychological insight that could be garnered from it. Corporations with the technology to profile and marginalise everyone. A government with the lawful ability to spy on anyone that poses a threat to it.
It is not us that should be subject to this kind of treatment. It is the government. It was they, not us, who invaded two countries. It was they, not us, who endorsed the use of hundreds of tons of depleted uranium in Iraq, a viscious toxic substance whose radioactivity will persist for 4,500,000,000 years and will kill and cause suffering to millions all over the world. And they didn't do this, contrary to their lies, in some fight aginst terrorism or because Iraq posed a threat to us. They attacked Afghanistan and Iraq because of profit and power. Which is exactly the same reason why they're imposing all these barbaric surveillance measures on us.
