Good that you accept that point.

Now, the problem is that for many Americans, Snowden is a trauma. So 
you are obsessed by surveillance. Keep cool. There are NSAs in every country.

What Snowden realy means for the Govs 
(politicians/militaries/economists) is that he has shown the 
technical vulnerability of the US tampered world technology,and the 
unexpected over importance of the US relative global digital power as 
too important for the stability of the world. Moreover, US appeas as 
USG+NSA+USCC+GAFAT (google, amazon, facebook, apple, twitter: their 
multilateral sovereignties by-passing national laws.This is too much 
and this has to be corrected.

The trust in the American neutral unilaterality cannot be afforded 
anymore. The technology has to be reviewed. ICANN is not the only one 
in line, IETF/IEEE/W3C also are.to discussed. Merkel and Hollande are 
no necessarily approaching it in the correct way yet. But the intent 
is here. Snowden has been welcome by Putin, etc.
