    You underestimate them.

    That's what they said about the NSA spying on everybody, or the IRS being used to target political rivals. Even after it was discovered, half the population is so blind to the repercussions that they are cool with it.

    ....I guess we should be wary of the chippy van then.

    Doublethink: When it comes to doing good, the government is completely inept and incapable, but when it comes to doing bad, they are maniacal masterminds that control everything.

    It's not both. Pick one. In reality, they're about equally as capable and/or inept at both.

    Also, who DIDN'T think the NSA was spying on us since the 90's? To be honest, if what's come out is the worst of it, I'm somewhat relieved. I feared worse.

    Wrong. It's both. Just because you're really good at blowing stuff up doesn't mean you're really good at putting stuff together.

    Yeah, sure. Everyone "knew" about it. But did anyone acknowledge it? Nope. That was for Hollywood movies and Alex Jones.

    Well, that's not quite true. There was plenty of government spying rhetoric during the Bush years. Right up until a democrat was put in office. Then any that talked about it were once again quickly dismissed as conspiracy nutbars. As if the election somehow magically made these things cease to exist, even as they announce that these programs were expanding.
