No idea what people are worried about. Not unless they have something to hide.
No idea why people are shocked that the government is monitoring the internet. After all, the U.S. Department of Defense funded ARPANET that was the first internet protocol back in 1969. Clearly if the government, specifically the D.O.D. Funds something, they fund it with the intention of using it for the nations defense.
Look, if your worried about the government finding out personal information they wouldn't have anyway, simple solution. Don't put it on the internet or on your computer for that matter. Another idea would be common sense. Don't do illegal stuff.
Our privacy is our own, no one has the right to it, unless we allow it. If you have nothing to hide, then go ahead and give consent to the NSA to go through all your personal files. Other's may have certain pictures or videos that mean something to them and don't want it to be seen by anyone but themselves. Or they just have nudes and stuff they don't want some random person to see.
Top-secret NSA documents, disclosed by whistleblower Edward Snowden, reveal that the agency's current successes against Tor rely on identifying users and then attacking vulnerable software on their computers. One technique developed by the agency targeted the Firefox web browser used with Tor, giving the agency full control over targets' computers, including access to files, all keystrokes and all online activity.
