Good point, it's unfair to isolate out just the US. Seems like some other
nations viewed the Snowden disclosures as prescriptive or aspirational, or
were already aligned. Britain, for instance! So tragic what's happening
There are some countries where the respect for individual sovereignty
seems a bit more integral - Switzerland, Iceland perhaps - where
government efforts to compell private actors within their borders to
compromise security seems unlikely, and where business models typically
seem less surveillance-based. But that's a pretty weak foundation,
It's just the US has become such an embarrassingly good example of this.
