I just watched Stewart Baker defend metadata collection on The Independents. Well, he tried to defend it. Turns out it’s all a lie, and the young Libertarian hosts of the show called him out on it.

“Metadata absolutely tells you everything about somebody’s life, if you have enough metadata you don’t really need content.” – Stewart Baker
Either you are for my privacy or you are the enemy of my Constitution, and by extension, my enemy as well.
