Here is an article in Der Spiegel which describes a hereto unheard about level of infiltration into our computer systems through backdoors and malware at an unimaginable level.

It’s not just terrorists who are driven off the grid. It’s people like you and I, who do not want our privacy invaded to this degree.

Somebody stop this nonsense! The job of my government is to protect me, not to abuse me.
