Exactly. Flood and overflow databases, corrupt with misleading or
confusing information, etc. It's your life, you have no requirement to
make surveillance easy.
We're also all able to make FOIA requests, file lawsuits against any
entity without a lawyer, video and share many (but not all) things, etc.
It's fine that the government looks out for us, when it is not abusing
that power, but citizens have to maintain a balance of power in the
small and retain absolute power in the large.
