Reasonable surveillance

More of what the government does is classified than ever before. If you do not know what the government is doing then, obviously, you have no say over its activities. This flies in the face of the Declaration of Independence, which states that governments derive "their just powers from the consent of the governed." 

How can you consent to something you know nothing of?
You can't, of course.  But that's not the point. 

You can't object to something if you don't know it's happening.
