The suggestion is made that we should have the NSA data-mining every activity of every person on the planet to monitor life-changing events like divorces and dropping out of school and matching it to ammo and arms purchases.

I think that's wrong, I think the real answer here is to have impersonal psychiatry booths like in THX 1138 ("Can you be more... specific?") and then pharmaceutical us into cooperative, submissive drones.

But things like divorces and dropping out of school give one more money to buy ammo and more time to shoot said ammo
