    It will be up to the corporations to end this... (none / 0) (#1)

    Concerned citizens won't be able to make these changes - but the most powerful people of all, the corporations, will end these activities eventually.  It just has to bite enough of them on the bottom line:

    Boeing just lost out on a a $4 billion fighter jet contract with the Brazilian government to Saab.  Apparently the president of Brazil was thisclose to approving Boeing for the contract when the Snowden revelations came out in June. Rousseff wasn't too happy to learn that her Blackberry had been tapped by the NSA.

    As these business losses increase, we will see the corporations begin to lobby.  Hopefully enough business will be lost quickly enough to turn around corporate opinions in the next few months...
