Surveillance Quotations

Governmental surveillance is not about the government collecting the information you're sharing publicly and willingly; it's about collecting the information you don't think you're sharing at all, such as the online searches you do on search engines... or private emails or text messages... or the location of your mobile phone at any time.
Mikko Hypponen

But that is all the more reason to safeguard human rights and fundamental freedoms.
Ban Ki-moon

Edward Snowden

Dennis Miller

Racism is a moral catastrophe, most graphically seen in the prison industrial complex and targeted police surveillance in black and brown ghettos rendered invisible in public discourse.
