"The War on Terrorism" is basically an excuse to spy on citizens in order to make money off corporate interests and to keep citizens "in order". Imagine, everyone knows that if they make one step out of line the whole government will know, and its straight to jail. This will allow a dramatic increase in stupid laws because they would be a lot easier to prove that they have been breached. This would allow every citizen to carefully watch out, imagine being so scared of the man that you would have to rigorously change every activity you participate in to avoid run in with the law, it fucking scares the hell out of me.
