Collection of data regarding citizens without their consent is a direct insult to their dignity as they are disrespected and treated as people who should not have a right to privacy in the first place.
There are records that clearly show that NSA gave the wrong information regarding their surveillance. They lied even under an oath that they were not accessing any information (Paul). This was just disrespect to human decency while invading their privacy.
The involvement of the president who should safeguard the rights of the citizens offer leaves little to be desired as he reminds everybody of tyranny that all fought. He justifies the violation of privacy in broad daylight.
Scapegoating around terror attacks and other security measures while NSA first lied that there was no surveillance in the first place is a clear indication of a system that doesn’t not feel the need to clear the air for its citizens but rather opt to violate their rights to privacy because there is nothing much they can do. Citizens now have trust issues with the government (Dickson).
