sorry, but to me it seems most of them are the product of maniacal,
major depressive, or schizophrenic minds inside the NSA. For more info, see:


I make an analogy there between the NSA and the Knights Templar whom
https://duckduckgo.com/Saladin fought using his own innovative and
benevolent approach to psychological warfare (Which we can still learn a lot
from today). So there's probably nothing to fear, and we should not get too
paranoid, because a paranoid man is miserable and ergo - insecure.

Hello NSA! NSA? Hello, the world at large! I feel like
