Once upon a time, American founding father Benjamin Franklin said “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Over 200 years later in America, it was revealed our government was wholesale spying on the people. Instead of outrage, the president’s response to this revelation was, “But I think it’s important to recognize that you can’t have 100% security, and also then have 100% privacy, and zero inconvenience. We’re gonna have to make some choices as a society.”
The American people were obviously not included in the ‘we’ who were making said choices.
Some Americans were so deeply concerned about this unconstitutional invasion of their privacy and rampant trampling on their Constitution and Bill of Rights, they rushed out to buy a $120 plain white T-shirt with absolutely nothing whatsoever on it designed by rap star Kanye West.
