Faux-naieveté misses the point.

PRISM revelations – a real shocker for anyone that didn't already realise governments monitor their own and other countries' citizens

That is not what the complaint is about. Nobody thought that spies didn't spy; we had, however, hoped that they did it legally, constitutionally, proportionately, purposefully, and under warrant and effective oversight. We did not merely hope that this was the case; we had the right to expect that this was the case, and the fact that it has turned out not to be is an offence against liberty, justice and democracy. Your oversimplification appears deeply ignorant of the actual issues at stake.
