When Government Agencies Violate Constitutional Rights – NSA

In late 1940 and 1950’s in East Germany, the government there spied on every facet of peoples lives after the war. The organization was known as the “Stasi” or secret police of East Germany.

From Wikipedia:
“One of its main tasks was spying on the population, mainly through a vast network of citizens turned informants and government agents. ”

They used phone tapping and photo surveillance to collect information on its citizens going about their daily business.

The West including the U.S.A who promoted “democracy and freedom” condemned the “Stasi” for spying on its citizens on a mass scale… so why is it that starting in the year 2001 until now, the American agency NSA has adopted the exact same surveillance tactic?

Why is it that a country (U.S.A) so adamant on “democracy and freedom” employing the same data collection and spying policies on U.S citizens as communist East Germany with today’s technology?

Is it a violation of the citizens privacy rights?
