FATCA and similar laws have eviscerated financial privacy in the US. And last year, thanks to whistleblower Edward Snowden, the world learned the extent of the surveillance conducted by America’s largest spy agency, the NSA.
Now the Postal Service has joined in the game, introducing an NSA-style dragnet over mail delivery.
The most shocking aspect of the crackdown against financial and electronic privacy is the lengths that Congress, the Treasury Department, the NSA, and now the Postal Service have gone to subvert our constitutional right to privacy.
The lesson is the same, too. If you want privacy – of any type – you won’t find it in the US. But you will find it offshore.
