"If this unreasonable invasion of privacy continues, someone will just invent a new way to communicate that has a new way to evade the snooping, therefore closing the door to the current methods used by the government so they'll end up with less data rather than more."

You assume there IS a way, but you overestimate the intelligence of the average human being or have your forgotten the while President Trump deal? Unless you can make it turnkey easy AND bulletproof at the same time (which I bet you can't--security and ease of use tend to be on opposite ends of the scale: see front doors), there WILL be weaknesses that a state (where money isn't always an object) can exploit (thus the data center in Utah, which I still believe is just a front for a black-project quantum computer--black projects HAVE come from the US in the past; see the SR-71).
