For years, people have warned that there is an unholy cabal between government and corporate America that included computers and the military industrial establishment. That was valid decades ago, but the NSA is off the chain. They not only were tapping into everything everywhere, they began intercepting computers and installing their own tricks in there. The ramifications are off the wall. How can anyone safely buy a computer? We have to purchase our own components and construct our own. You cannot even buy a computer without Windows 8.
China banned Microsoft Windows 8. Now China is investigating all equipment bought from the USA. These people at the NSA are wiping out industry faster than protectionism in the 1930s. When we turn down, it will be propelled by the insane information greed of the NSA. Just pure recklessness.
