Edward Snowden In Citizenfour


It all comes down to state power and people's ability to meaningfully oppose
that power.

I remember what the internet was like before it's being watched and there's never been anything in the history of man that's like it. You can have children from one part of the world having an equal discussion, being granted the same respect as experts in their field in another part of the world, any topic, anywhere, any time, all the time and it was free and unrestrained.

We've seen the chill from that model, the change, towards something where people self police their own views and they make jokes, literally, about ending on the list if they donate to a political cause or if they say something in the discussion.

It has become an expectation that we are being watched.

Not all good motives end well. You thought you were doing somebody a favor but the other person is doing you mischief.
