The most important thing for us to realize is that the ultimate goal of the NSA and by extension the GCHQ is to eliminate privacy worldwide. This might seem hyperbolic or melodramatic at first, but it isn’t. It is a literal description of what the NSA and its closest partners in Canada and the UK and the rest of the ’5 eyes’ spy grid participant countries are attempting to achieve. The reason why I know this is because this is what they say repeatedly! Sometimes in public, Sometimes in their private training documents which they thought we would never see. It is clear from numerous documents that this is actually the mission of the NSA.
