“NSA Prism: Why I’m boycotting US cloud tech – and you should too”

By Trevor Pott, 8th June 2013-The Register

Not exactly surprised about Prism or other forms of surviallance (“medical”). Maybe we just forget the important things.

The distinction between “freedom” and “liberty”
“”Liberty” – a word very rarely used any more – seems to have largely retained its original meaning: the innate right of an individual to live life without interference. Liberty is the right to do, say, purchase, love, laugh, live, cry and whatever else they can think of as they see fit. This is the liberty of which the founding fathers spoke when writing the US Constitution. It is a word whose utterance – and certainly whose meaning – has all but vanished from modern American politics.”
