What we're seeing in Der Spiegel, The Guardian, Washington Post and
other select publications is the birth of new threat models - not just
for activists but for all of civil society, parliamentarians, companies
and more. This is a threat model that "many have known" and yet at the
same time, there is clearly new stuff. For one - we're seeing
confirmations of things that have been denied in public - we're also
learning the names of things, which now made public, may be FOIA'ed by
name as well as pushing for disclosures. This is where we'll see if
America will shine - when the information comes out, will we be able to
use our democratic process to turn this disaster around? I'd like to
think so - that is why I worked on these pieces - hope is not lost.
