[Conor Friedersdorf on the NSA offering to be Norton Anti-Virus for Big “bailout” Finance]:
> Americans shouldn’t trust any of these repositories of power. Government and corporations are both capable of terrible things. To have them colluding with one another in secret, inexorably arranging things so that there’s disincentive for disagreement among them, is terrifying. The people can fight Big Government. The people can fight Big Finance. The people can fight Big Tech. Could the people fight them if they’re all working together with secret law on their side?
A terrifying thought — at least to me — the idea that those three become so dependent on each other that they collectively squash any entity trying to speak up for what is right.
