Both the National Security Agency and Google are gathering information, but Google can only offer me something I probably want and don't have to buy. On the other hand, government has the power to make my life miserable, put me in jail or kill me.

Some say you have nothing to fear if you aren't breaking the law, but the law is malleable. What is legal today could be illegal tomorrow, depending on too many factors to elaborate.

I'm not willing to give up freedom for safety.
