When NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden leaked details of massive government surveillance programs in 2013, he ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security.
That debate came to a head this year, when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook.
Meanwhile, journalists and activists are under increasing attack from foreign agents.
To find out the government’s real capabilities, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE founder Shane Smith heads to Moscow to meet the man who started the conversation, Edward Snowden.
However bad you fear the surveillance is by your Government, you can be sure the reality is far worse. Every step you make is known, every journey made is recorded, every sound, every sight, every web page visited, every money transfer, every phone call, everything.
And the best part, your paying for your own surveillance!
“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say”. – Edward Snowdon
