	I think the pattern should be changed to one in which there's no government surveillance and no goverment. That's easier said than done of course, but I think 'your idea' of   crowdfunding a system of self-defense against the state would be a better tactic thant wearing 'black boxes'.

	Furthermore, taking into account that the state is protected by cops and soldiers, then self-defense against the state entails the extermination of cops and soldiers - who are easier and cheaper targets than their bosses.
