US and UK spy agencies defeat privacy and security on the internet

I have memories of attaching PGP signatures to my emails in undergrad. No one knew what the hell they were, and as no one used PGP themselves I couldn’t encrypt anything anyways. Perhaps now people will start to take a bigger interest in this and start using encryption software like GPG (a free, open source version of PGP). Why make it easy for these largely unaccountable agencies to snoop your stuff?
