US government has betrayed the internet

In Nerds only on September 6, 2013 at 11:10 am

Great article in The Guardian today regarding the unlawful surveillance of the internet by the USG.  By hacking online encryption the USG has betrayed businesses,  governments and citizens around the world.  This has resulted in a new cold war but on the internet.

On one side we have anarchist groups like Anonymous and whistle-blowers like Assange, Manning and Snowden.  On the other side we have out-of-control USG agencies like the NSA and CIA breaking all recognizable laws to invade our privacy in the name of the all-powerful national security state.  How could this possibly end well?
