Well I have a problem with this . The major issue is the premise that there these nefarious terrorist groups the World over plotting to overthrow the United States of America.
I am going to suggest that this a manufactured threat created by the same Governments passing these laws.
As such no changes to surveillance laws will change this and the article than be be read as a "Do not spy on me or my friends spy on the bad guys" type article.
There is no step in the right direction until all of these manufactured threats and false flags are closely examined. This should start with 9/11.
