Domestic spying is evidence that the U.S. Government no longer trusts its own people. But the American people have more reason not to trust the government than the government has to not trust its people.
Open-source governance forces the government to trust its people. By extending trust, the government will hopefully come to realize that the American people are not its enemies. And the American people will hopefully come around once again to trusting their government.
Open-source governance is the perfect cure for healing the ever widening rift between Americans and their government, and to get Americans back to working together rather than all rowing in opposite directions. If the government stubbornly refuses to take its medicine, our country could quickly become a terminal case.
