Yes, You Have Something to Fear, Even if You’re a Law-Abiding Person

Whether we’re talking about NSA spying, cross-border collection and sharing of private financial data by tax-hungry governments, pointlessly intrusive money-laundering laws, or other schemes to give the state more power and authority, we’re often told that “if you’re a law-abiding person, you have nothing to fear.”
But that assumes government is both competent and trustworthy.
You don’t have to be a crazed libertarian like me to realize that those two words are not a good description of Washington.
