Distinctions Without Meaning

I am so weary of the lobotomized babblers who defend NSA surveillance practices with the argument: “Google and credit card companies collect all kinds of information about us; I see no cause for alarm when the NSA does the same thing.”  Whether they realize it or not, the NSA defenders’ line of reasoning also validates rape. “Some people engage in sex voluntarily, others involuntarily: what’s the difference?” Ayn Rand once said that anyone who doesn’t see the difference between a voluntary act, and an act of force, “deserves to find out.”
