I was reading an article about Aaron Swartz and the massive collection of private information the FBI has collected and continue to collect about citizens with no criminal charges — and which they ultimately used in the charges against Swartz.
I'm not a US citizen, nor I'm interested in USA national issues.
But I'm curious!
Why are people allowing agencies like FBI and NSA to collect so many data about them? Why are not the Patriot Act and other privacy-threatening acts re-evaluated?
