“If the government cannot be trusted to be a good actor, to act in good faith of the defense of the rights of the people around the world, then maybe we should take that authority from them. And that may not be possible through laws. Because the law is just paper on a page. Laws cannot protect us. The Constitution cannot protect us. Rather, it is incumbent upon people to protect the laws and the constitution. We give it power. It is we that give it force.” – Edward Snowden
