The Five Stages of Living in a National Surveillance State by Tom Tomorrow

I don’t know what it takes to keep a nation safe, but that still doesn’t make this NSA spying thing any easier to accept. Look what I read from this article:

How Scared of Terrorism Should You Be?

a rough calculation suggests that in the last five years, your chances of being killed by a terrorist are about one in 20 million. This compares annual risk of dying in a car accident of 1 in 19,000; drowning in a bathtub at 1 in 800,000; dying in a building fire at 1 in 99,000; or being struck by lightning at 1 in 5,500,000. In other words, in the last five years you were four times more likely to be struck by lightning than killed by a terrorist.

And who can forget this article:

You’re Eight Times More Likely to be Killed by a Police Officer than a Terrorist
