Keep them out of our online sexy time

from here and here

The details of this spying are pretty laughable. Imagine doing something naughty after the government made you install a certificate that allows them to view your encrypted web traffic. You'd have to be pretty dumb to get caught, but it would suck not having the freedom to do what you want (or possibly need) to do. I suspect it does more to keep people in line than it does to actually catch people - not unlike the way obvious surveillance cameras deter some crime.
