For the record i am not anti-rights or any crap like that but its ridiculous how theres all this hoopla everytime theres something like this surfaces..
If you have an obsession with privacy then put all your illegalz on an external drive. Goodness.
You clearly don't see how things work.
There's about 5 people that control more than 20% of the economy of the entire US. Now, lets say you're a genius inventor, and you make a highly efficient solar panel that has 82% efficiency...or a paint that absorbs energy just like a solar panel would, but can direct electricity to a central point. Lets say your company is ready to market these panels or solar paint stuff.
You pose a threat
to one of those five high up people: Lets say one has a 60% share in an oil company valued at $3,000,000,000,000, and he'd rather not lose it. He will use his connections to know everything about you: Where you live
, everything you say on the phone, anything you do at a computer
. Heck, if he's well enough connected, and you pose a big enough risk, he could even have spy satelites watch your every move.
After he knows everything about you and your genius invention...he will offer you millions of dollars to keep silent. I suggest you take him up on the offer.
