Now Reading: No Place To Hide by Glenn Greenwald

“The ability to eavesdrop on people’s communications vests immense power in those who do it. And unless such power is held in check by rigorous oversight and accountability, it is almost certain to be abused. Expecting the US government to operate a massive surveillance machine in complete secrecy without falling prey to its temptations runs counter to every historical example and all available evidence about human nature.”

Excerpt From: Greenwald, Glenn. “No Place to Hide.”
