This article discusses the author's concern over the tracking of personal telephone calls by the U.S. federal government in the interest of combating terrorist activities. The author discusses the little amount of outrage over the cases of domestic spying, as a large majority of individuals believe that the swapping of personal data, in order to protect U.S. national security, is a fair technological practice. The author further discusses the idea of privacy and swapping of personal information over the Internet, cell phones, and ATMs.
