From Orwell to Snowden: How Surveillance Became Normalized

copied!

George Orwell’s 1984 described a surveillance state that monitors its citizens so constantly, so completely, that people assume they are always being watched. As online and physical surveillance increase in modern times, whether it’s the NSA, email providers scanning our messages to serve up ads, or being caught on a security camera as we walk down the street, surveillance is no longer relegated to the pages of 1984. It’s a part of our everyday lives.Jan.12.2018
