Your emotional arguments have not convinced me that white collar crime is more
serious than violent crime such as bank robberies. They also don't convince
me that meta-data analysis would be unable to catch any criminals.
I am still convinced that David Lyon's claims are incorrect and should be
avoided by anyone who wants to make a convincing case against government

Now I suggest that people read serious web sites such as the above.
I think that this discussion went wrong about the time when someone cited the
movie "Mercury Rising". Such movies won't teach you anything about the NSA,
they have a really good museum to teach you all the positive unclassified
things (see above URL) and occasional whistle-blowers to tell us about the
less positive and classified stuff. Really such movies are only useful if you
meet a .mil or .gov person and want to wind them up.
