Am I on a government watch list as a potential terrorist?

For my next book, I've been spending a lot of of time reading about ELF (environmental liberation front) and ALF (animal liberation front). The book is about a 16 year old who goes undercover with ELF (renamed MED - Mother Earth's Defenders - for the book).

So that means I'm reading tips about how to set firebombs, build pipe bombs, not leave trace evidence, make timers, glue locks, etc. All of it easily available on the Internet. A lot of it downloaded to my computer.

So is the government watching? Three years ago, I would have said anyone who thought that was paranoid. Now it seems realistic.

Let's just hope the first amendment protects me.
