Things that are still going on - right this minute - please add to the list
Our E-mails are being monitored and read

Our telephone calls are being intercepted and monitored

Our intelligence Agencies are torturing people

Our military is killing and maiming innocent civilians in more than one country

More, more, much more ...

None of this has ended, none of it.

4. We are all in danger.
