The government agencies can choose between two approaches : (1) Work to protect the American public by finding safety holes and telling the relevant parties how to fix them, or (2) Work to give themselves more power by finding safety holes and keeping them secret (as well as using government power to create safety holes whenever possible), while spying on the public to find evidence that is useful to their interests.
One of these choices reflects the government's duty to represent and protect the public. The other reflects a government that is much more worried about self-preservation than representation. I'm sure I don't need to tell you which one is which, but I must ask you which one you prefer.
You know which one I prefer,without me even saying so. You also know which one we will get.
