  1. Isn’t most metadata collection already used for commercial purposes? Like the way Facebook ads reflect our most recent Google searches? I could be mistaken.
    The way I’ve been approaching government metadata collection is the way I’ve been approaching police militarization – any soldier will tell you not to go into a security situation with a strong show of arms, yet this is what our police do; any security analyst will tell you mass collection of metadata will prove pointless towards improving security. So why do either? Why have the government collect metadata on every citizen, and build the massive data-collection center in Bluffsdale, Utah, and why have the Pentagon supply local police with military power? Neither practice accomplishes its ‘intended’ goals, but both happen to increase boot-pressure.
