This Week’s Quote: “The people who are speaking best to this are the psychologists who look at what it is like to live under constant gaze, or under the threat of constant gaze…it makes you different. It makes you more conformist. It makes you less willing to think new thoughts, to try new ideas. It stagnates society…Any social change you look at, whether it’s civil rights or marijuana legalization, whatever your issue is, it starts by people at this end where it is socially unacceptable doing it and having it be okay. And then it spreads slowly. Ubiquitous surveillance at this end stops that process cold.” —Bruce Schneier
