Do we need silver bullets and stakes in its heart? I speak of the Patriot Act, which Mitch McConnell (Republican, not that there's much difference between them and Democrats these days) has just put forward for reauthorization. This is the legislation that authorizes the NSA surveillance that Snowden disclosed.
But to answer my own question: no, we don't need magical assistance. All we need to do is to elect liberty-loving, honest politicians. Which is apparently impossible in the U.S. of 2015. So maybe we do need magical assistance...
