How to deal with NSA spying? Two views
In the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations, the NSA continues to spy away, obtaining telephone records for everyone in America and otherwise snooping on people who aren't accused of any crime.
There seems to be two main approaches for dealing with all of this. One option for folks who haven't given up on the system is political action, and there's a new coalition if you want to get involved with that (hat tip, Dan Clemons).
The other main approach is to adopt using encryption; here is a guide from Micah Lee, which apparently will be updated soon. You can also read Julia Angwin's guide.
