  1. I do not support the invasion of privacy but some basics on why #NSA are jacking into our industry. Comms, money laundering and bad guy data. Big data identifiers like the movement of virtual currency or items that have real-world value, crossed referenced with key terminology , people, places and things begin to paint a startling picture of a highly organize but decentralized terrorist organization. The misuse of this power and information is always a possibility (see FBI circa 1920s-1980s, CIA anytime) but I am not in the camp that big brother/illuminati/military industrial complex is coming to get us. Our intelligence community is working incredibly hard to break the backs of our unseen enemies who are not just trying to hurt us physically, but destabilize our fragile economy, discredit our govt and attack our infrastructure one line of code at a time. We will never hear stories of success and victory because these silent warriors do not disclose who they are or what they do in defense of this country. Those who claim to be doing what they do to expose the transgressions of our government, wouldn’t flee to other countries that engage in the same or even more voracious levels of cyber warfare to be debriefed and give complete access to what has not been shared online. #coverstory #goldfarmers #bitcoins #datawar My thoughts…
