So when the government has access to your browsing history, your health records, you weapons purchases, your private emails, your forum posts, you'd rather the laws allow anyone who can gain access to that information be able to disseminate it to any and everyone.
We get up in arms here about personal privacy; we expect privacy laws -- the laws we have, as a nation, created -- to mean something. But when the laws that we, as a nation, have created to protect the privacy of government secrets somehow our principles of privacy and self-governance...um, don't matter? There's a lack of consistency here, as I see it. Change the laws; change the regulations.
I completely agree that our government is classifying too much and making Freedom of Information a joke. But we change that by making a change in our government. Not by waiting for a Manning to come along and suffer for our lack of concern. Not by creating a hero out of our lack of vigilance. Information vigilantes are proceeded by information mobs. Once we decide that our laws don't protect our privacy, what does?
