“Up here in space, I’m looking down at you. My lasers trace, everything that you do. You think you’ve private lives think nothing of a kind. There is no true escape, I’m watching all the time”

untitled  In 2015, it’s no longer the Government just looking down on us from above. They are watching our every move. We now have “smart” phones with dumb people. I am “one of the dumb” too. We use bank cards, we shop on line. Everything we have has GPS on it. We hardly use cash anymore. When we do we are sometimes still asked for our phone numbers. Most willingly give it to them. So our habits and whereabouts are constantly known and recorded. So is Edward Snowden a saint or a sinner? He did expose top Government secrets but he also exposed the fact the Government spies on its own citizens “or” watches them.

For someone else to be able to monitor our messages, photographs, physical locations and online activity equates to total surveillance.’

“We all have a right to privacy, but this is gradually being eroded. Last year in America, Congress decided that the Fourth Amendment, which states the need for a warrant to search for specific things, does not apply to non-US citizens’ personal data. That is 95 per cent of the world’s population.”
