Until there is a publicized domestic prosecution of someone based on information gleaned from this snooping, there will be no outcry. At this point, the government is gathering information for meta-analysis. As far as we know, innocent individuals are not being harmed. Sooner or later, the government will overreach, and then there may be an outcry. In the meantime, we are all frogs in the pot, and the temperature does seem to be going up, but who notices? So long as I have my virtual reality, who cares what goes on in the real world. We'll just surrender that to the government.
