We Are Losing Our Privacy- CISPA IS Passing
WE ARE LOSING OUR FREEDOM TOO
The House passed the controversial CISPA bill today, and put it into the senate's lap. Even though the President has threatened to Veto the bill because of the loss of internet privacy. However, if we lose our privacy, don't we also lose our freedom, or at least some of it?
The major reason, we have been told today, is to keep the U.S. safe in case of a major Cyber Attack. But, from who? We as citizens of the United States of America, don't need to be told why. We just need to follow the rules, even if we don't like them. Privacy? What is privacy and who needs it, well not us, if not having it, keeps us safe. Isn't that true? After all, a computer can pretty much do anything these days.
CISPA allows private and government online companies to access all of your information at any time at all. Facebook is already doing this. Facebook is working with the CIA at this point in time and has been for several years. Facebook has already been giving away your information for years. It doesn't matter if you have done anything wrong, it is just helping the government keep track of you. Statistics and that kind of information.
Part of the problem is other countries, that try to steal cyber information from computers in this country. So, to protect our cyber information, CISPA would be a way to do but at what cost?
Are we going to lose our privacy, and our freedom too?
