Re: spying
Well, there is a mindset that was very popular during the FirstColdWar that said "If you knew what we know, you would agree with what we do."

It's come back.  This time its all about "terrorism", scaring Moms that think anyone who is not the same as they are are coming to behead them.

The FBI doesn't want you to know what one case officer can get on you without a warrant or oversight..
