NSA's reason/justification/rationalization/excuse is to discredit Muslims who attempt to "radicalize" others into committing terrorist attacks by catching them visiting online porn sites and exposing them to the world.
Is anyone naïve enough to believe that in this age of thoroughly corrupted government the NSA will confine its surveillance to potential international terrorists and never turn its tactless tactics against domestic political enemies?
Consider that Libertarians have already turned up on leftwing lists of "extremist hate groups."
Now consider that libertarians have an established reputation of supporting the rights of all peaceful citizens, and that includes nonviolent pornographers, porn stars, topless dancers, strippers, prostitutes, pimps and everyone else in the voluntary sex trades.
Libertarians are one of government's biggest enemies!
But there's a way libertarians can counter the NSA's boorish behavior: turn their own peep show techniques against them by airing the dirty linen worn by NSA's own closeted skeletons.
To prove that someone is viewing porn means NSA narcos must also view the porn, thereby arousing their own libidinous proclivities like teenage boys peeping through cracks in the wall of the girl's high school locker room.
Consider what NSA's own spying makes of them. Professional voyeurs. Peeping Toms. Oglers. Snoops. Lascivious lechers, prurient peekers.
The psychological term for NSA spying is scopohilia or scoptophilia, identified in Wikipedia as referring to the sexual pleasure derived from looking at "erotic objects, erotic photographs, pornography, naked bodies, etc."
What libertarians should do, then, is to log in to XXX websites. Day after week after month. And stay online for hours at a time. No need even to look at stuff. Just do it over and over and over until the snoopers' files on us are overflowing.
Then, if the NSA spooks ever "out" us as porn watchers we can turn the tables on them by publically announcing our counterspy strategy.
"We were part of a counter-sting operation against illegal NSA spying," we can publically proclaim. "We logged onto porn sites every day and stayed on for hours to fool the fools at NSA. Now they're trying to manipulate and discredit us with the very vulgarities we made them watch. Busted!"
So keep a copy of this article on hand to fling in their faces, and thank Edward Snowden for telling us about the NSA's porn peeping.
