Even in A Free World, The State Will Spy on the People

Regarding the growing anger of Americans who just heard that NSA had access to metadata of Verizon customers, I can't see this as a big deal.

For Canada's CSIS has been spying on Canadians for just as long, but our spooks won't disclose anything for fear of compromising the sovereignty of Canada to foreign intelligence.

We won't even know the full details of the VIA rail bombing case currently before the courts because it would reveal the extent that the State goes to, spying on the People.

However, as a Canadian, I have nothing to hide because my right to privacy trumps the People's "need to know", which is daily manufactured by mass media without my consent.
